Wow, now this is a movie that I must see! I heard an interview with the author of the book on which this film was based, LATimes reporter, Steve Lopez. He meets a mentally ill homeless man playing Beethoven on a violin with only two strings, and, recognizing his talent, writes a story about him. Lopez’s readers send him musical instruments to give to this homeless man, who was a musical prodigy as a child. The resulting friendship transforms both men’s lives in this inspirational true story [3:06]

The film is available in general release tomorrow. Let me know what you thought of it!
