About the Movie
Surrounded by wealth and living with abundant resources in Manhattan, 12-year-old cello prodigy Reggie, lives a solitary life lacking only frequently absent parents and friends. Estranged from family, having slacker boyfriend troubles, and fired from her waitressing job, sometimes musician 23-year-old Eleanor (Leighton Meester - GOSSIP GIRL, THE JUDGE) needs a new place to live and a new job. Fate winds her lovely fingers around these two lives to unexpectedly place the inexperienced Eleanor as the new au pair for a skeptical Reggie and the music in their hearts and souls intertwines to create this beautiful story about discovery and acceptance.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's a bittersweet story that thins out toward the end as it turns too obviously sentimental, but it's still a nicely etched tale of the intersection of two unrelated lives.
Fresh: Whaley nicely calibrates this wistful dramedy's emotional quotient, never allowing sentiment to turn into sap. He also smartly dials down Reggie's initial precociousness to reveal a kid who's deep, resourceful and strangely sensible.
Rotten: A playful tone and passable performances can't overcome an unremarkable premise and predictable plotting.
Rotten: Unsurprising given its laughably affected title, Like Sunday, Like Rain boasts what may be the most insufferably precocious protagonist in cinema history.
Super sweet movvie
its a super sweet movie!
Soulful Melody of Two Conflicted Beings
It’s a mood piece where nothing really happens and there’s no real resolution at the end; yet, that’s exactly what appeals in this genre of movie. There’s an undeniable charm to the slow pacing of each scene that pans out the steady progression of Eleanor and Reggie’s life faced to eventual calamities.
Though Leighton’s dedication to the role of a girl who's lost her bearings in life is nothing short of admirable, it is Julian’s unique performance that carries the movie. We are genuinely interested in the genius boy and his attraction towards Eleanor’s misadventures, despite the latter’s constant attempt at quelling his curiosity. The words “Don’t grow up too fast” come to mind. Eleanor’s eventual submission to Reggie’s surprising compassion and understanding allow us to feel a sort of timeless friendship that transcends age and gender.
Then there’s the soundtrack that is so incredibly enchanting. Highly recommended for those who want to just sit down and feel human again.

The movie made me tear up when I first watched it toward the end when Leighton left Julian to pursue other things. It's an emotional/ sad movie. Julian, and Leighton are awesome actress/actor I highly recommend you watch it.
