“I totally enjoyed this movie. The scenes have an appealing fantasy element, while at the same time, the plot manages to explore true-to-life human situations such as bullying of those who are different.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe music is incredible, and mostly consists of original scores. It includes gospel, rock and classical, seamlessly integrated in a new way that works extremely well.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe plot is somewhat predictable and possibly a little u0026quot;sappyu0026quot;, but those elements are easily overcome by the moment-to-moment execution of the story. Think of a modernized u0026quot;Oliveru0026quot; with Robin Williams as Fagin to a group of homeless, musically talented kids…plus extra elements of romance and intrigue, and you will have a bit of an idea about this movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe three main characters are all physically u0026quot;beautifulu0026quot; people who manage to convey the story with a minimum of dialog. Additional characters, including Terrence Howard as the social worker, Jamia Simone Nash as the young girl in the church choir, and Leon G. Thomas as the young boy who befriends the musical prodigy, contribute strong performances and pizazz.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSomeone sitting near me stated it is impossible for even a prodigy to learn music so quickly and at such a young age… However, this is not true. Check out Jay Greenberg, a young music student currently studying at Julliard. In the end, this movie is at least an endorsement and celebration of the significance of music in our lives and at most a transcendent, fun experience to watch.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI rarely like to see any movie more than once, but definitely want to see this again. Take the family this is for children, teens and adults. Donu0026#39;t miss it is my recommendation!”
