Storyline

Janice is the subject of the town gossips for four reasons: she wears too much lipstick, her hair is too big, she is a single-mother and her two children are strange. Ray (6) is a hellraiser and Tony (9) is autistic. One day, however, Tony sits down at the piano and plays Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Janice knows there may be hope for him (and them) yet.

Amazing
17 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

It just goes to show that people with special needs can have more talent in their little finger than most have in their whole body. A remarkable story about a young blind boy who can listen to a piece of music and immediately play it on the piano. This was an inspirational story of love, devotion and the hardest times in someone's life. Based on a true story, having the ending show the real Tony Johnston play the piano proves that film wasn't blowing his talent out of proportion. I would recommend this to anyone, especially those who find times hard to cope this, this movie just goes to show that anyone can have hope and a chance to a wonderful life. A definite 10 out of 5 stars.
