Garnering audience awards all over the festival circuit, Richie Adams’ true indie is a beautiful, soul-stirring drama that brings together the city of New Orleans and the jazz that made it famous. After losing his mother to Alzheimer’s, a neuroscientist comes across Una Vida, a jazz singer he discovers singing in the streets of the French Quarter. Quickly establishing that she too suffers from Alzheimer’s, he’s driven by personal and professional regrets to help. Piece by piece, Una Vida’s story is revealed.
Based on a novel by Nicolas Bazan, Director of the Neuroscience Center for Excellence at Louisiana State University, Una Vida is spawned from scientific research but carried by Ellis’ remarkable performance. The manner in which this declining woman becomes fully restored when performing her music is beautifully rendered by both actress and director. Employing his rich, satisfying jazz score to great effect, Adams has succeeded in creating a film that feeds both heart and mind.
