| Excellent movie for music lovers
I, without a doubt, give the max grade to this movie and as of tonight it made my TOP 10 EVER list of movies. If you're looking for that special something, the out-of-the-box thinking coupled with good advice, lots of perseverance, focus on the goal and hard work. The road is bumpy and not without surprises but the ultimate result of Tommy's work in teaming up inmates for evading their status quo by reaching out the freedom of expression through music is unbelievable. I have never had so much energy from a piece of music such as Tommy's concert in Sydney. Kat sees the real Tommy and that changes her scary life down- spiral, too. They both find love in the community project that changed many lives. Family matters, friendship and good over evil prevail, it's all around a great movie to watch. Strongly recommended to families with children.
