After her death, Kazu had to guard her sister. Once, Zu was unable to control her sister and her neighbor, Ebo, helps her. Ebo is a boxer and teaches boxing to children. Ebo’s wife left him for his brother. Ebo helps Zu to take care of Music. However, she continues dealing with the drugs. Rudy reveals that Ebo has health issues. When Music gets sick, Zu couldn’t spend on her medications. So, she takes Music to an adoption center. But, she couldn’t leave her and go and hence retakes her. When Zu and Ebo decide to sing on a stage, Music stops them and begins to sing. The film is all about how Music sees the world.
Kate Hudson and Maddie Ziegler lived in the roles. Their performances are neat and beautiful. Leslie did a good job as Ebo. Although Mary Kay Place’s role comes in a limited screen time, she did a good job.
The musical journey of Music is described in the film. How music connects everyone in this world is shown well. Even children with autism get connected with music and link their lives with music. The characterizations are good, and the actors are well picked. The makers had boldly attended to this concept and succeeded. The music and cinematography are appreciable.
What’s Not There?
It is a different attempt by Sia. However, the bold attempt has paid her well. Music – watchable!
