The Tic Code Review

Curious little film tells us about a young piano virtuoso named Miles (Chris Marquette) who is stricken with a nervous tic that turns out to be Tourrette's Syndrome. He loves jazz, and soon enough he's playing at the local nightclub, despite his age, and here he meets a kindred spirit in Gregory Hines's Tyrone, also a jazz pianist and also suffering from the same problem. And wouldn't you know it, mom needs a little affection too. Cute and sometimes touching, but it's hardly a total success. Written by Polly Draper, who stars as the mom.
