Boy from the wrong side of the tracks with bad attitude finds a champion to support and push – this time in the exclusive world of a boys’ choir school where everything is about winning (the school can charge higher fees…).
Newcomer Garrett Wareing is the boy with the voice, Dustin Hoffman the crusty voice maestro. Add Kathy Bates, Debra Winger and a Philip Seymour Hoffman look-alike in Eddie Izzard and that’s one hell of a cast for a small film. Pull on those heartstrings and lay it on thick. But the music…. Oh that music. It’s sublime.
