If you want to be totally transported by a modern fairytale, pick this. Sure it's a huge suspension of reality, but just the kind I love. The music connects the orphan with his talented musician parents, comparisons can be made to the Oliver Twist tale. I really enjoyed it.
I must also confess I find Jonathon Rhys Meyers quite attractive. As with many films of this nature, critics weren't impressed, but viewers rated it higher.
A suspension of reality in the opposite direction to last night's movie. Balanced me out!
