Tagline: An incredible journey moving at the speed of sound
An orphaned musical prodigy named Evan (Freddie Highmore), begins his journey with his search for his Birth Parents.This is a wonderful musical drama with wonderful fantasy elements.
Sometimes, I usually postpone the best films I know... (due to reviews done by friends)... and I can't believe Ive been postponing this absolutely lovely movie about life and music.. being lost and being found... very moving and magical too!
The kid here looks like the son of cousin CJ, so yeah it added delight. It has this fairy tale element but also grounding it with what can really happen in reality - e.g. bullying someone who is different, and also abusing talents. I love how my love for music (though i'm no prodigy or do I read notes), but my appreciation for music is just as heavenly as it is for Evan. ;)
