(Movie) August Rush

Okay, this is hollywood all over. Yes, I know. Even the description screams “gimme a break!” BUT… it’s still a beautifully filmed movie with absolutely beautiful music. I actually added the CD to my list to pick up. The kid does an amazing job of acting too. The script – eh – it’s okay. But a few times, blended with the music, I felt a chill or two slide down my spine. Well worth a rent.

There’s music in the wind and sky. Can you hear it? And there’s hope. Can you feel it? The boy called August Rush can. The music mysteriously draws him penniless and alone to New York City in a quest to find – somehow someway – the parents separated from him years earlier. And along the way he may also find the musical genius hidden within him. Experience the magic of this rhapsodic epic of the heart starring Freddie Highmore (as August) Keri Russell Jonathan Rhys Meyers Terrence Howard and Robin Williams. ‘I believe in music the way some people believe in fairy tales’ August says. Open your heart and listen. You’ll believe too.

    I have to agree…this is a good movie. I saw it in the theater and have it on my Blockbuster list to watch again.
