A 10 year old gifted boy wants to be a jazz pianist much to the chagrin of his more classical oriented piano instructor. With his mother's help, he is an underage regular at a local nightspot, where he is teamed up with a sax superstar. Both come to learn that each suffers from Tourette's Syndrome (thus the film title). The older man has developed mannerisms to cover up his own fallibilities and resents the boy and his mother's acceptance of the disease.Written by

At the end of the credits, the following dialogue is heard: Miles: Mom, which would you rather? Flat fingers like Thelonious or flat fingers like Horowitz? Laura: Flat fingers like Miles. Tyrone: Flat, flat, flat. Miles: Mom, which you rather? Pennies facing heads, or pennies facing tails? Laura: Is this a trick question? See more »
I saw this movie last night, missed the beginning, but came into it about 1/2 hour into it. I absolutely loved it. I thought Gregory Hines and Polly Draper had such on screen charisma. The story was really touching too. It made me want to read more about the effects of Tourette's Syndrome. I can't wait to see it again. I also loved the music from it and will look for a soundtrack.
