A well told story about a young girl who is a budding musician, trying to survive with a mom who is barely interested in her daughter's future. It is implied that the mom has a drinking problem, although we don't see her drinking, only an empty bottle in the trash. Your heart goes out to this young girl and we appreciate the kindness of her piano teacher who celebrates the girl's birthday when the mother doesn't. Well shot and edited. The three key actors are excellent and believable. I recommend this for teens, ages 13 to 18, plus adults and give it 4 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Julie S. KIDS FIRST! Juror.
Keys is a story of Lei, a 16-year-old piano prodigy who lives in the Western Sydney suburbs. Struggling to survive, she uses her talents on the ivory keys as a constructive creative outlet. Torn between her mentor, Mrs. Hagedorn and her mother Cecilia, Lei is seeking to win her mother's affection, even if for a day.
