A Dublin street kid is selected as a choirboy for Handel's first performance of The Messiah. His friendship helps deliver the composer from a temporary lack of self esteem and restores his great glory.
We used to watch these movies in music class when we had nothing to do. This one and the one for Handel, I think were my favorites. I have no idea how accurate this movie is but it was better watching this than singing "We Are the World" or playing ukulele. The Duke character was funny and I liked how they showed Bach as a family man too. The little kid was entertaining as were his mindless parents. I think this one had the best music out of all of them. I recommend also Handel's Last Chance, Rossini's Ghost, Beethoven Lives Upstairs and the movie about Liszt to all those that detest singing and playing instruments in music class. Overall, I give it a 7/10.
