Rating of
1.5/4 

The film is about a young boy seeks out his long-lost folks and discovers prodigious musical talent in this family-oriented drama from Disco Pigs director Kirsten Sheridan. In the aftermath of a passionate night together above New York's Washington Square, a charismatic Irish guitarist named Louis (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) and a reserved cellist named Lyla (Keri Russell) are forced apart by fate. This movie has stupid characters and bland acting.

I found the story and characters stupid. Robin Williams was an adequate scheming villain type, but that's about all I liked in this movie.

Loved MOST of it (Warning: I "spoil" the ending)

There wasn't anything to complain about (except for one thing I talk about in the next paragraph). I really loved this movie. It was touching, heart-warming, and inspiring. The music was absolutely brilliant. I don't know what it is about Freddie Highmore that makes my heart melt. He was so hopeful and innocent. Keri Russel was another heart-wrencher. If Freddie was the one that ripped my heart out then she was the one who threw it on the ground and stomped on it. Her desperation in looking for her son pierces through the screen and shocks the heart of anyone watching. I really love her as an actress. I think they all portrayed their roles really well. That's including Mr. Meyers. He did not have that much on screen time, but when he was on he was on. Just as much as the other character...

Loved It!

To sum it all up: I felt the magic. I expected to like this film but I never expected that I would end up loving it. I thought the first hour or so was pretty good but everything got so much more interesting when the three main characters started go get closer to one another. There were definitely moments when I wanted to yell, "He's your father! He's your son!" at the screen because I wanted the family to finally get together because they've been longing for each other for a decade! Of course, we all know how it's going to end: the seemingly disparate characters will end up together. If they did not, that would be a complete rip-off. Still, the old-fashioned formula worked well. I also like the fact that the music is integral to this film. In fact, it almost becomes a character to the po...

Charming for the sentimental types

The story owes more to OLIVER TWIST than mere inspiration; itís practically a remake. Yet none of Dickensí urgency is present, and though August faces problem after problem, thereís never a doubt in our minds that all will turn out well. August is actually pretty lucky for an orphan living alone in New York City. Not only does he find a homeless guardian who is not a pedophile, even though he has a horde of young children in his care, his extraordinary gift seems to instantly dispel any punishment coming his way. Near the finale, when the film attempts to create a villain, it suffers. Sure, August is sad, but everything is going to be all right. This, along with most of the film, will be eye-rollingly nonsensical and irritating to some, but the film has a few key elements that manage to r...
