LOVED this movie. Ridiculous and a bit corny, but totally worth all the kleenex you'll go through. Right up there with the count of monte christo. Watch it.
Must watch.........
heart touching movie.
Great movie. :)
I though this movie was amazing. If you have ever heard a note of music in your life, you will like this movie. It's about a boy who is seperated from his parents when he is born. His dad is a rockstar and his mom plays the chello. He can hear the music, and it tells him where to go. I feel like I know the kid, and he is my new best friend. This movie will stay with you for a lifetime. It has an all around great message, and rocks.
Take one part young Irish rock musician. Add a beautiful young Julliard trained classical cellist. Mix together on a magical New York evening under a full moon in spring, with appropriate background street harmonica and guitar. Throw in a handful of star-crossed fate, and you have



August Rush

Overall, this movie is very moving and inspirational if you think about the message hard enough, but I knew I would probably like the movie from the previews.

The story is about a couple, both musicians who have a child, but the child is aborted by the woman's father to a boy's school. The boy hears music in everything, and is determined to find his parents, and runs off to follow the music and find his parents.

Here are few of the things that I could have made better, myself. Throughout most of the movie, mainly beginning and end, the main character, August (Freddie Highmore), is giving bits of dialogue about him following the music and hearing it in things and all of that. It was a little awkward, and hard to believe. It was just plain weird. Also, the ending needed some help. It left you hanging, not really sure what to know what happened.. And the last thing is how throughout the movie, he heard the sounds and started to "conduct" which really looked weird, almost mental.

Freddie Highmore did pretty well with this movie, Being acclaimed from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. Although he really didn't speak much throughout the movie, but I guess he was always in hard thought. I was surprised when I saw Robin Williams. I expected a lot more from him. He seemed ok throughout, but I was expecting better from him. I was disappointed at that.

Although there were some really unrealistic parts in the movie, it still was very good and had a good meaning and message. It was also nice to see a movie about music as well. It was a different aspect to look upon. I would recommend seeing this movie.
