I really liked this movie. It's constantly on TV, and I don't get tired of it. Meryl Streep should have won the Academy Award, and I was mad she didn't. She did a fantastic job for the role she was given. Not only did I find her great, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find out it was her playing the violin! The entire cast plays their own violins! That is so cool! It's so surprising as well. What else is surprising is that Wes Craven did this movie. Wes Craven, the director of such crappy movies as Cursed and Dracula 2001. Amazing, Wes Craven can actually do good movies unlike the crappy horror movies that you go to the ticket booths for your money back afterwards. Bravo!
