Blueberry Hill is a 1988 American film directed by Strathford Hamilton and starring Jennifer Rubin, Carrie Snodgrass, and Margaret Avery. While grieving the recent death of her father, Ellie Dane (Rubin) turns to music to help cope with the pain. She quickly finds that she inherited her father's musical abilities, and begins developing her skills as a pianist. She becomes fast friends with Jazz singer Hatte Cale (Avery), whom regularly gives Ellie advice about both the music world and with finding solace in death. Ellie's mother Becca Dane (Carrie Snodgrass) is unable to help Ellie, for the grief in losing her husband has proven too much to handle. While spending time with the local musicians, Ellie learns family secrets that perhaps she was never supposed to learn. Set in the 1950's, the film's soundtrack is composed of music from some of the greatest Jazz legends in American history.
