What is Press Play?
Laura (Rugaard) is located in a classic American beach town (type summer in your eyesso to speak) and here her best friend Chloe introduces her to her half-brother Harrison, who works in an “antique” record store, and his peculiarity is the wall where there are cassette tapes with groups of people who have sold their old music without noticing those tracks: the shop that Run by an old Cooper (Glover) company called Lost & Found.
Between Laura and Harrison, the first topic of discussion was spot on the music, which soon became the soundtrack to their summertime love, including concerts, surfing, kisses and announcements. In fact, to be honest, they really do record the soundtrack to their story, with the songs important to them ending on a cassette, and to seal everything Harrison gives Laura a Walkman (for the youngest of them, the predecessor of mp3 players).
In the height of happiness, the day after Harrison’s birthday, the boy wakes up early to go alone surfing in the ocean, but is involved in an accident that cost him his life, and Laura is in unbearable desperation.

Pros and Cons of Press Play
Having made it clear from the beginning that watching the movie is only recommended for those who want to watch a romantic and (also not) dramatic, let’s briefly analyze the strengths and weaknesses of Press Play.
Among the positive aspects, in addition to the chemistry between the two protagonists, we definitely put the music, almost a hero from this story. It’s not very well known music, especially if you (like the writer of this article) are no longer up to date with the latest bands, but the way the songs have gone down in history is certainly appreciated.
By the way, the idea of connecting jumpers is very nice, even if it is not very original (or maybe it is better to say Knot) thunderstorms when listening to songs (unlike Stranger Things 4if we think about it, where there was a need instead to stay connected to reality): anyone could, in this case, recognize the erotic power of the songs we listened to as youth, and in this sense the role of “Virgilian” in Dante’s sense Danny Glover is perfect.
To be strict, at least one criticism should be directed at this movie. Which, although it doesn’t claim to be the centerpiece of cinema, still seems a bit rushed, especially in the first part, when the love between Laura and Harrison becomes something magical without giving the audience time to connect with it, but also in time jumps that seem Too fast and too close to each other.
In short, a film that is too short for the story it tells and the need to emotionally engage the spectators, but generally makes itself watch in order to interest its premise and see how it ends (and you obviously don’t. We say that). Now that you’ve been warned, it’s your choice to watch it or not.
