I really enjoyed this movie about a boy, in an orphanage, who refuses to give up hope that he will, one day, be reunited with his parents. His musical ability is all he has, which was his legacy from them.
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.

"Listen. Can you hear it? The music. I can hear it everywhere. In the wind... in the air... in the light. It's all around us."

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."

August Rush is a light hearted cheery movie, perfectly designed for a lazy day Sunday afternoon with the one you love, or even alone if you are lover of the classic musical love story. A musical prodigy enters into this world and is forced into being a lost child by a over-bearing father and a love and a family group which was meant to be is held off for over a decade due to a strong family ruler.

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 give it 4 stars instead of 5 because the plot is relatively simple with not a lot of twists or turns, and I was a little disappointed with the Robin Williams character, but I will say that if you are a music lover, this movie may fill your soul with creative inspiration.

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.

This movie is a superb presentation of the triumphs and struggles that a young musical genius. And when early in the show, it appears that a saint-like person takes in begging street kids for "their benefit" and safety. However as the movie progresses, it becomes abundantly clear that this saintly individual is actually taking advantage of these kids to satisfy his own monetary greed. Then as this young boy, August Rush is about to reach stardom, this greed creep tries to prevent his stardom. But in the end, August Rush prevails.

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.

August Rush - I picked up this DVD and began to watch it without reading the back cover. I was not disappointed. It was a great film, with superb music and very cleverly edited, with the film looking forward and back, intermixing with the present interspersed with clever sound effects, as it filters in and out.

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.

I love August Rush. It's a beautiful movie. The only part that could be better is Robin Williams... he seemed an unlikely person for the character to me. Then again, his character is kind of crazy, so I guess that works...
It's a movie for people that love music :)
