On the QT, was directed by Yale Strom and released in 1999. The coming of age drama tells the story of a teenage boy, Jari (Sam Bell), who dreams of playing music in the city. He moves to New York and secures an audition with a major musical institution. To pass the time before his audition and earn money to live on, he starts busking the subway system, entertaining guests while they wait for trains. In New York, earning a living this way is commonly called playing "on the Q.T.", a practice that lends its name to the movie's title. While playing the violin there, he meets a passionate but retiring musician Leo (James Earl Jones), who takes Jari under his wing. He also meets a talented singer songwriter Carla (Trudie Styler), who lures him into a torrid affair. Along the way he learns valuable life lessons about who he is, what he wants and ultimately how to succeed.
