Director: Francois Girard
Starring: Dustin Hoffman, Josh Lucas

With all the disappointments surfacing from American Cinema in recent years, its refreshing to discover this small but sparkling gem amongst the multi-million dollar blockbusters or more aptly rubble.

Boychoir tells the story of Stet, an 11 year who joins a boy choir school after the death of his mother. Estranged from his father who tries to hide his son at the school, Stet is troubled and rebellious, but attempts to learn music and utilize his beautiful soprano voice to embark on the touring choir, thus, realising his dream.

Dustin Hoffman plays the role of Choir Master Carvelle, who initially is against Stet joining the choir, but slowly attempts to nourish and mould his talent.

After a long absence Debra Winger returns to the screen as Miss Steel who initially notices Stet's talent and Kathy Bates is appropriately cast as the stern but most likeable headmistress.

Newcomer Garrett Wareing is a natural as Stet and his performance in the sugar-sweet poignant scenes will ensure there won't be a dry eye in the house.

This surprise film of the year is triumphant and heartfelt. The soothing heavenly Angelic soundtrack of soprano solos and harmonies is hypnotic and should entice movie-goers to return for a second viewing.
