    "A captain, seven children, what's the matter about that?" - From the song "I Have Confidence" I absolutely loved this movie! A spirited nun in Austria named Maria has never fit in at the abbey. So the head nun and others decide to let Maria be a governess for a former captain and his seven children. Maria thinks that this is no problem. Boy, was she wrong. The children hate her at first. But lovable Maria finds a way to get them to like her. She takes them on a picnic and while she is there, they all tell her that they can't sing. Maria is taken aback. Immediately, she begins to teach them. With the basic to more complex singing, Maria and the children begin to bond. With the children taken care of it is on to the captain. Maria soon realizes that she has feelings for him. But sadly, he is already dating a woman. But by the end of the movie, he falls in love with Maria and get married. But it is not happily ever after for this family. At this time World War II broke out in Austria. Nazi soldiers lined the streets of Austria. The captain soon was assigned to become a Nazi. But the captain is a strong patriot of Austria and would never give her up. So he and Maria hatch a plan to trick the Nazis and flee from Austria to a countryside. The movie ends with the captain, Maria, and the children walking out of Austria and away from the Nazis. I enjoyed this movie because the music was catchy, the plot was exciting and sometimes funny, and it was just a classic movie that I am sure you will love! I suggest this movie if you like musicals, love, and coming together of family. Happy watching!

                    I LOVE The Sound of Music. I grew up watching it and knew "Edelweiss" by heart before I was five. The Sound of Music is great for kids. Maria acts like a kid herself, and she is the loving mother that the kids need. The Sound of Music also teaches history (World War II) and different ways that people love people. The Baroness loves the Captain because of his money, and Maria loves the Captain and the children because of their personalities. Also, the nuns have a change of heart and include Maria into their circle of love and trust. Maria also teaches the kids that it is okay to have fun-they climb mountains, trees, they canoe (and swim in the process), put on a puppet show, and go perform in a giant auditorium.
