General Comments

Good piano intro but could have been built it up a bit slower to build suspense, make the listener wait a bit don't give all away so soon. That being said it was very pretty and emotional. I like the flute line in the beginning, very pretty.
Instrumentation is good and the arrangement is dramatic and emotional maybe even sad, definitely good for a movie score. I think you could have bolstered the melody a bit more with stacking the instruments playing it, The melody line could have been played by the piano, and strings at the same time. Also I felt you could brought the percussion in a bit ear;ier. I assuming you did most of this score in the digital world, if so I feel you should invest in orchestra library that sounds life like as possible. That being spend as much as your pocket will allow, as "sounds" are key in production especially in this genre' of music. You need to trick the listener into thinking it's a live orchestra playing. All in all I think your very talented and I definitely think you can get this type of music placed in movies, TV, advertising and even video games. Overall I think you did a great job.
