August Rush (2007). A drama with fairy tale elements, where an orphaned musical prodigy uses his gift as a clue to finding his birth parents.

This is a sweet little family film with fantastical elements and a rather lovely portrayal of the personality of music. That said, there’s some about it that makes me think of a TV movie, I don’t know what it is. I think it might be the very basic (and pretty uninspired to be frank) costuming and set pieces. Sweet film, but really nothing transformative. 6.5/10. 

- I want to walk into the sea and never come back. I want the tide to take me out of me and give me someone else. Maybe for a half hour or so. That would be good, wouldn’t it, Pig? 
- Say again. 
- Just for a try, you know.

Disco Pigs, Kirsten Sheridan (2001)
