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.

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.

Since I saw this movie a number of years ago, I have wanted to see it again. A good story, excellent music with some lessons for all of us.
Would recommend it to children over 8 years of age.

This is a very good movie. It goes to show that if you truly believe in something, at times it may work for you. You have to have faith.
