I really enjoyed this film. Despite 'warnings' from friends that thought the acting was a little cheesy, I found that the entire film was enjoyable and engaging.

I would highly recommend this film for anyone who enjoyed August Rush, or other films that feature the theme of music being an inseparable part of our lives, in many modes and forms.
