5.0 out of 5 stars Best Feel-Good Movie of the Year! April 8 2008
I really enjoyed this movie about a boy, in an orphanage, who refuses to give up hope that he will, one day, be reunited with his parents. His musical ability is all he has, which was his legacy from them.
This movie is about how hope, and music, makes that long-sought reunion, between parents and child, possible.
Be WARNED: When I saw the movie for the first time in the theatre, there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
You will really enjoy this movie and the sound track is amazing also.

5.0 out of 5 stars A song, a song, high above the trees Dec 18 2008
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
"Listen. Can you hear it? The music. I can hear it everywhere. In the wind... in the air... in the light. It's all around us."

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Boy musician (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) meets girl musician (Keri Russell) and they make beautiful music up on the roof before going their separate ways
2. Little orphan boy (Freddie Highmore) hears music in the wind and feels a connection to the parents he never knew
3. Desperately seeking parents, he winds up in New York City where he is taken in (in more ways than one) by a man named Wizard (Robin Williams, channeling Fagin)
4. He discovers a previously dormant musical talent, and impresses everyone
5. Fairytale ending will leave you asking or more

This movie is actually a modern day fairy tale, with an incredibly talented cast and a fantastic soundtrack. In fact, it is the music that makes it so special, and I can't recommend it highly enough. This is one to own and watch over and over again.

"All you have to do is open yourself up. All you have to do... is listen."
