This movie is not about a piano. It’s about being seen and adored as one is. It’s about being deeply appreciated with ones flaws and quirks and brokenness. It’s about the person that sees you and how that transcends rules and expectations and social stature. It’s about wordless understanding of one’s deepest passion and purpose and being able to rest in that place with the one that gets you. It’s about the difficult road to bliss and how it is so worth it.
