There are great movies, plenty of them, but there are those particular films that puncture our hearts and makes us emotional just thinking about them. The Sound of Music is one of those movies for me.
I saw it for the first time last year in an Airbnb when I was bored and looking for a film to watch. That was when Disney+ was still relatively new so I was browsing its vast collection of movies and I came across The Sound of Music. I had vaguely heard of the movie but I had no idea what it was about or that it featured some of the most iconic songs created for any musical in history.
As I sat back on the couch under some covers watching the film I was instantly pierced by the magic of this movie from the film’s iconic opening number, “The Sound of Music” sung so beautifully by the legend Julie Andrews. It was that opening number that made me realize I was about to watch something truly special and sure enough the rest of the movie had me just as enthralled.
I smiled quite a lot and yes, I cried quite a lot too. And the final twenty minutes of the film filled me with so much anxiety that I felt like I was going to burst! After that initial viewing that utterly destroyed my emotions on a level most films can’t I went on to watch the film a subsequent four times and each viewing was as magical as the last. But I decided to take a break from the musical and I hadn’t watched it again…until last night.
