You know the drill: nuns, mountains, a lonely goatherd, children, Nazis. Kristen deLohr Helland is a fantastic Maria, and she sings the part the way Mary Martin did on Broadway, rather than the way Julie Andrews does in the movie. It's directed by David Bennett; his staging of act two is especially good. Read a full review here. And don't miss this essay by an Austrian who hates the movie.
