This movie is about how hope, and music, makes that long-sought reunion, between parents and child, possible.
Be WARNED: When I saw the movie for the first time in the theatre, there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
You will really enjoy this movie and the sound track is amazing also.
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):
1. Boy musician (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) meets girl musician (Keri Russell) and they make beautiful music up on the roof before going their separate ways
2. Little orphan boy (Freddie Highmore) hears music in the wind and feels a connection to the parents he never knew
3. Desperately seeking parents, he winds up in New York City where he is taken in (in more ways than one) by a man named Wizard (Robin Williams, channeling Fagin)
4. He discovers a previously dormant musical talent, and impresses everyone
5. Fairytale ending will leave you asking or more
This movie is actually a modern day fairy tale, with an incredibly talented cast and a fantastic soundtrack. In fact, it is the music that makes it so special, and I can't recommend it highly enough. This is one to own and watch over and over again.
"All you have to do is open yourself up. All you have to do... is listen."
Finally thru fate and for the love of music and what control it has over people, young Evan now renamed August Rush is living his dream to get his music out to the masses so his long lost mother and father can find him. In a final concert in Central park August gets to play his August Rhapsody in "C" major and his call to his parent is answered.
I say "may" because I have no idea if *everyone* would enjoy the music that is played in the movie, but I can't see how anybody wouldn't be moved by it because you can feel that the music was written with such inspiration and from the heart of the composer. My husband and I both really enjoyed it (but of course, we are both music lovers).
The boy was really a sweet character too, really cute and likeable.
My only problem with this dvd is that I loved it so much, that I loaned it to someone close to me, and they never returned it.
The film was a mix of Annie and Oliver with a modern musical edge. It was unusual to see Robin Williams with ginger hair as the modern Fagan who befriends August Rush - a music prodigy who ran away from his orphanage, believing that he can hear music in everything and that he must follow it to find his parents.
It's an excellent movie with good acting and Robin Williams doing a dramatic part which he is excellent. If you like music I'm sure you will enjoy this movie.
