Everythig starts when Lila Novacek (Keri Russell), a young brilliant cellist, meets a rock musician called Louis (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) at a party; they spend a night together.

After that the movie tells the story of a realy special boy of 11 years called Evan Taylor (Freddie Highmore) who hears music everywhere he goes. He lives in an orphanage but he knows that his parents are alive, but maybe they don’t even know about his existence, and is determinated to find them; he is quit sure that the music will make them be together again. After his scape from the orphanage he goes to New York, where his search begins. At the same time Lila discovers that her son is alive and starts to look for him by herself.

In my opinion this is a really beautiful film that show us that faith and perseverance can make great things in our lifes. It’s a sweet story about love, faith, passion and specialy about music.
Here you are two quotes that I like from this film:
I believe in music the way that some people believe in fairy tales…
Music is all around you, all you have to do is listen…
