Pretty Good
4 October 2001 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was pretty good actually. we watched it in my music appreciation class at school. it's about this kid that steals chicken and his mom works in a cathedral or something and she gets george friedrick handel to tell the dude she works for to get her son out of jail then oddly enough handel finds out while the boy is cleaning the floor that he could sing and was so much better than the poor excuse for a choir they had. If your interested in classical music and musicians and baroque period this is a good movie for ya
