August Rush ()

directed by
featuring Freddie Highmore, Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Terrence Howard, Robin Williams

Estranged from his parents by circumstance and nudged toward a foster family, a young boy seeks out his long-lost folks and discovers prodigious musical talent in this family-oriented drama from Disco Pigs director Kirsten Sheridan. In the aftermath of a passionate night together above New York's Washington Square, a charismatic Irish guitarist named Louis (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) and a reserved cellist named Lyla (Keri Russell) are forced apart by fate. Despite the fact that they do not remain together, however, their fleeting union has created something amazing that neither could have ever anticipated -- a baby. Unfortunately, just after the child's birth, the mother is misinformed that the infant has died. Cut to 11 years later, when the child, Evan, is living in a Gotham-area boys' home and has developed an acute ability to listen to the sounds of the outside world -- hoping against all hope that his biological mother and father will turn up to claim him, while those in charge try to encourage him to open himself up to the possibility of adoption. Unduly rejecting these bids, Evan runs away into the city. Out on the streets, the child falls into the clutches of a manipulative, untrustworthy street person named Wizard (Robin Williams), who renames Evan "August Rush" and opens the boy up to the depth and breadth of his own musical talent even as he smells the opportunity to grow rich off of the foundling. Meanwhile, Evan/August's hope persists that he will be reunited with his folks, and Louis and Lyla, unable to forget their initial night of love, feel themselves being drawn back together by fate.

Makes you cry.

by HsSrvnt on Oct 6, 2009

Awesome movie and music. Neat thought is that God will always look for us and find us no matter where we are at, or what we've gone through.

Feel good movie

by Shalako on Aug 6, 2009

This movie made us feel good. An orphan's odessy to reunite with his parents; the time jumps are a little confusing until you've seen it a few times. The theme uses music as a euphenism for a psychic connection between the child and his parents. His journey starts as rather sad but progresses steadily to a happy ending.

Very Inspirational

by ESDWilliamson on Apr 29, 2009

This movie is highly inspirational and moving. It grabs your attention from the very first scene. Freddie Highmore is such a fine actor that transports you into the head of a boy with a sense of hope and destiny. Along with the talents of Robin Williams, Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and up and coming singing and acting talents of Jamia Washington this movie is definitely one of my favorites and I highly recommend it as an inspiring family experience.
