I finally got around to watching Little Voice. I only knew Jane Horrocks, the star, from an episode of Red Dwarf (I tried Absolutely Fabulous once, but I couldn't get into it, and I don't remember her at all--by the way, she was Nirvanah Crane in the Red Dwarf episode, Holoship). When I heard about Little Voice, and how well she could mimic different singers, I wanted to watch the film, but I always ended up putting it off. That finally changed tonight.

Overall, the movie was just okay, and the video quality was utter crap, but she is something to hear. I'm not familiar enough with the singers she covers to know how close she gets, so I'm wondering who else has seen it, and what did you think? I'm tempted to get the CDs.

I just saw that movie a month or two ago as well - I couldn't believe how good her voice was! The rendition of "Somewhere over the Rainbow" gave me goosebumps! The songs I knew were very faithful to the original artists.

By the way, she plays the quirky office assistant on AbFab- I think you said you didn't remember her - she was only in about every third episode or so.

I may have to try Absolutely Fabulous again, just to see if I get it now. I think I was still in high school when I tried watching it.

Yeah, Sean, the more I listen to that Jens Lekman CD, the more I like it. I've ordered other stuff by him, so hopefully I'll get that this week.

I saw it when it came out. I felt the same way as CV did about it.

Oh I love most renditions of that song and I'd love to hear this one as well! BTW, I don't see it in the list of songs of the Little Voice OST, am I missing something?

Thanks!

Just saw the movie last night after the recommendations here. The song came during a pivotal moment in the movie, but there was dialog interspersed throughout it. Not sure why it didn't make it onto the soundtrack, though.

I've got Manhattan Transfer on right now. Wow! Amazing on vinyl. I just had Willie Nelson's Stardust on. Wonderful little album. Next up is: Van Morrison, Maria McKee, Talking Heads. Not in that order. I love this hobby!

Ah I see, thanks! Anyone knows who the singer is? I'll see if I can track the song down through the singer! \:\)
