The title of the film comes from the J. D. Salinger novella, Seymour: An Introduction. See more »
In contemplating my own connection to music, I always return to the same answer: universal order. If the heavenly constellations offer us visual proof of this order, then music must be its aural manifestation. Through its language we become one with the stars.

must see for every artist (and/or emotionally erudite human)
I wept, equally of joy and sadness, for most of an hour and forty minutes. Sit up front and go alone. See it at a theater only. This film is so quiet and delicate...and it just sneaks up on you and goes right through into your heart, gut, soul. It may be the most extraordinary film I've ever seen on the subject of artistry, creativity and its inner workings.....and I've see a few greats:(Frida, Turner, Vivian Maier, etc.)
'Seymour' is about devotion, love, inspiration. And it's big secret is that it GIVES THIS RIGHT TO YOU as you bear witness, if you let it get inside. You cannot go back into the world now. Well, not for a while. Not until you get over to the musical instrument, the pen or type, the camera, the canvas, the clay.
Ethan Hawke....what are you doing to us? The understated, magnificent director you have become! Thank you for this.
