Pure Country 2: The Gift
by Phil Boatwright

... As satisfying as down home cooking.

Dean Cain, George Strait, Katrina Elam. Musical drama released by Warner Bros on 10/15/10. Directed by Christopher Cain. Rated PG

FILM SYNOPSIS: A young woman, blessed by angels with a beautiful singing voice as a baby, must regain what she has lost in her climb to fame and fortune.

PREVIEW REVIEW: It's cornier than a Kansas cash crop, with cheesy special effects and laden with countless music video montages, all seemingly meant to boost newcomer Katrina Elam into the Grand Old Opry, yet, somehow, it works. I even went for the Kleenex during the final credits. Ms. Elam, playing a self-absorbed wanna-be gives it heart.
