The truth about this movie
20 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie in my Musical Appreciation class. It is about a boy who steals a chicken and runs into Mr. Handel. The boy's Mother was NOT an employee at the Catherdral, she cleaned and ironed shirts. The mother "bribes" Mr. Handel with non-starched shirts to save her boy from being in jail. Mr. Handel is writing the "Messiah", his most famous piece. The choir sucks until the washer lady's son is discovered by Handel. This Movie is a nice expiration's for those who love Musical history or for those who want to learn more about it. The only problem is bad acting towards the end. All-in-all this was a fairly good movie especially for a class.
