This is a great family movie. As a mom, I liked it very much because it stressed to my kids that being yourself in a peer pressure world can be very lonely at times, but that love of family is more satisfying than love of yourself.

Movie Reviews

The Sandy Bottom Orchestra
David A. Ginn | baltimore, md United States | 02/08/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A film from the heart. This is another one of those hidden
gems of a story. Great acting and scenes. If you love music, you will love this film. If you are not into music, the story will touch your heart. We need more movies like this."
Love of Classical Music
Jennifer Ferring | Cedar Rapids, IA | 06/23/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is excellent because it focuses on everyday life instead of fantasy (like Hollywood usually does). I can wholly relate to the 2 main characters as I too am a classical pianist and violinist who has always been the outsider (sometimes the reason being because of my love of classical music). It is a great family movie and can help boost your spirits if you are an outsider as well as give you the engery that you need in order to keep going to make a difference inspite of what other people think."
Wonderful family movie
Catlady13 | Shawnee, Ks USA | 08/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A good movie for kids and adults who have special talents, who stand alone in the crowd, to show them that they are not alone, and that they do have a place in this world. It also makes points about true friendship, and how a dream can come true if you try hard enough and have enough faith in yourself. Also touches on the art of compromise. Great story line."
