MPAA Rating: R

A doomed woman discovers her creative spirit during a final fling with life in this independent drama. Melody Wilder is already having a bad day when she visits her doctor about a troubling lump in her throat — her boyfriend has left her, and she’s lost her job. However, this news pales in comparison to what her doctor has to say: the lump is an inoperable cancer, and Melody has only a short time to live. Throwing caution to the wind, Melody rents a huge, luxurious apartment and furnishes it in high style, putting her purchases on a handful of credit cards she won’t be around to pay off. Melody also permits herself affairs with a few of the deliverymen who have become regular visitors to her loft, but she spends most her days alone, enjoying the trappings of wealth as she ponders what little future she has left. One day, Melody makes an impulse purchase, a red electric guitar that looks like one she wanted as a girl. While Melody isn’t schooled on the instrument, she begins teaching herself to work out chord patterns and melody lines, and in the last chapter of her life discovers a way to give voice to the pain and confusion she’s buried within her. Written by veteran underground filmmaker Amos Poe, The Guitar was the first feature film from director Amy Redford.
