Review Thriller

GRAND PIANO (PG13)

91 minutes/Opens tomorrow/****

The story: The last time pianist Tom Selznick (Elijah Wood) attempted La Cinquette, a so-called "unplayable" piece, he choked because of stage fright. Five years later, the one-time star is back on stage performing before a packed crowd. Turning a page, he finds a threat scrawled on the score: "Play one wrong note and you die."
