Worth Watching - Oct 3: Music Within Trailer with Ron Livingston
I really don't know how this film snuck up out of nowhere, but it did! Before this trailer I'd never heard of Music Within, even with Office Space's Ron Livingston starring. If you're a sucker for great, low-budget independent films that capture the human soul, then this one is for you. It's a true story about a guy who loses his hearing in Vietnam and befriends another man with cerebral palsy and discovers a new purpose in his life defending and empowering disabled Americans. It looks incredible and as a sucker for these types of movies, I'll admit I can't wait to see it. This is definitely worth watching yourself, so fire it up and prepare to be moved.
Watch the trailer for Music Within:
Forget Ron Livingston... Michael Sheen is awesome in this!

I have seen the entire movie. Twice. (early screenings). A great blend of humor, inspiration, and just plain fun. Rocketboy is right...Michael Sheen deserves an Oscar nod for his portrayal of the Palsey'd Art Honeyman (the real force in this movie). I laughed, cried, and enjoyed the music in this true-life journey.

Michael Sheen is great, yes, and deserving of an Oscar nomination, but people. Be prepared, Ron Livingston sneaks up on you and wins you over- I look for TWO nominations out of this movie. He is subtle and yet damn good. Well deserved role for Livingston who long ago needed to shake the Office Space thing and be recognized for the talent that he is. The Music Within WILL be announced from many an awards platform in the coming months.

Wait, I thought Ron Livingston is supposed to be deaf... how does he listen to the person on the other line of the phone? Nevertheless, this movie looks good!

Ron uses a phone that has an amplifier attached. Watch the movie again, and if you look real closely, you will see the receiver/head set portion is extra thick. It is a separate piece that he had to carry around with him to attach to any phone he used. It is all that was available 30 plus years ago-before the days of phones with volume control and digital hearing aids that adjust volume automatically with phone use. And to the earlier comments! YES!!! have seen the movie many times in early releases/festival showings where it has already won many awards. Ron and Michael are absolutely incredible in portraying their characters. I think this movie is a masterpiece! Inspiring and hilariously funny and based on a true story of Richard Pimentel, who is truly Very Funny too! Go if you want to be entertained, uplifted and really want inspiration that each person counts-and each person really can change the world (for the better!)
