looking for a movie about an orphan who becomes a musical conductor


hey i need help remembering the title of a movie.
it's a movie about an orphan who finds out his dad is alive but the dad sucks and the kid goes on to become a conductor. one of the scenes from the movie involved a kid who was talking to the main character. The kid says, "your dead parents, can you hear them?" and the main character replies, "yeah i can." and then the kid says "no... you can't." please help reminding me of the title of this fantastic film.


Was it 'August Rush', by any chance?
