So called professional critics don't have a clue...

This movie was very touching. As a new director I feel she did very well. The movie got to me bcuz it touches on the human nature of how we fight and sometimes don't get the chance to say we're sorry. The story line plays out with music and human touch being a healer of sorts. To me that is a wonderful gift to anyone having a hard time coping. I NEVER pay attention to the so called "critics" out there, simply bcuz those with true heart and emotion can connect with vision and meaning. I am one of those people. This movie brought tears and laughter to my day, and for that I'm thankful...One must put yourself in the character just add an actor would and see from the characters point of view and connect to the movie. Then and only then in such movies that reach out to your inner soul, can you truly judge a level of rating. I hope that you watch this movie and forget what the critics say...judge for yourself the meaning and the human touch...enjoy!
