Instead of music, I used my talent of writing to deal with the lost of my parents."August Rush" made me fantasize during the film that my yearning and searching for my parents were like this remarkable child. In the end all i can say that it is a perfect film to watch with your family , with friends or even alone for a magical and unforgettable experience . Younger ones might be a bit frightened by, as someone else said, the Fagan-like character played by Robin Williams and the intro bullying. Reviewed by Elliot V. At its end, the film received claps, cheers and shouts of approval by the majority of the audience. Evan is set to find his parents but come across a musical group of kids, who are making money for Wizzard, when Evan plays music, it's magical, Wizzard exposes Evan giving him a new name, August Rush and makes money off of him. The child actors were terrific, especially Freddie Highmore whose facial expressions alone carried more emotion than any screenwriter's words could. I was genuinely moved. This film really struck a chord in my soul. It's perfect for the family to watch, it's perfect for a group of friends, or just even for yourself if you are looking for a good film to watch.

But no bad language, no visible sex scenes (although we do know it occurred), and overall a delightful film. I absolutely loved this film during the free screening in San Francisco this evening. On the other hand, if you are looking for a film that will sing to your soul (and show you some beautiful eye candy as a bonus), look no farther. Robin Williams hit just the right note in his portrayal of Wizard. Despite splinters of wooden dialogue and the obvious, yet ultimately satisfying, use of the music of Van Morrison early in the proceedings, the film moves past both and bowls audiences over with poignant performances and stunning visuals in a first-class production. I was an orphan and identified with this child's yearning and searching for his parents. A stirring performance here by Russell will definitely remind end-of-year voters of her work in Waitress and should serve to solidify her chances for an Oscar-nom.The premise: A promising musician (Russell) is impregnated by a brooding but romantic Irishman (Rhys Meyers) in a one-night affair overlooking Washington Square Park that will change the course of their lives. I had goosebumps throughout the entire film. It was during the Great Depression and my mother gave me up to the county's foster care agency.I am now seventy-nine years of age. In fact, there was probably so much emphasis on the music that there was less character development than a lot of people would like.

I rented August Rush a few days ago with good expectations, I just heard wonderful things about this film, so I was excited to see it.

Hence, if you don't have an imagination, you should stay home. I was abandoned a second time by one of my parents.The film "August Rush" was healing to my soul wounded since early childhood;and again, in my early twenties. I absolutely loved this film during the free screening in San Francisco this evening. The film was funny, poignant and a tear jerker. It touches deep inside my soul .It will make you fall in love and will make you cry . During our screening at a particularly tough part for the title character, I heard people in the theater say "No, no..." The level of "buy in" and suspension of disbelief is high. And the music was amazing. I rarely if ever buy DVDs except for old classics but this will be one of the exceptions.

Near the end of the film, I started to cry like a baby. Let your heart open. A trio of beautiful performances form the heart of this film, although the secondary characters are also crisply compelling. There's no wrap-up dialogue or epilogue sequence, just the audience's own inferences. Also more than merely noteworthy is Jamia Nash, an 11-year-old with some of the best lines of the flick, who boasts a healthy dose of moxie that provides the perfect counterbalance to some of the heavier themes that accompany a film about an orphan searching for parents he isn't sure exist.While the genesis of the film may have started with producer Richard Barton Lewis's vision of his then-newborn son's little digits directing his own symphony in a Santa Monica delivery room, the screening of this film is sure to inspire many more digits to pick up and pick at a six-string just to see what happens. The actors playing Agust Rush/Evan Taylor and his mother and father were amazingly well cast. If you don't play the cello, you are not going to notice how bad she fakes it. Reviewed by Elliot V. Freddie Highmore has such an incredible talent for such a young age, but his face says so much and his acting is just perfect and makes the audience just fall in love with him. I had goosebumps throughout the entire film.

Layla's protective father falsely informs his daughter that her love-child did not survive birth, and delivers the boy, Evan, to the State, where the influence of all sounds excellent and small fill the boy with musical ambition and intuition.In addition to the above-the-liners already singled out, Robin Williams wows in a blinding turn as Wizard, a menacing Fagin whose Oliver Twists are young, homeless musical prodigies and whose milk-cart careers he manages in exchange for their daily take and a fancy stage name. Lyla and Louis, Evan's parents, were two young people who found a strong connection and had a one night stand, but Lyla's father takes her away from Louis and when a horrible accident happens, Lyla's father lies to her telling her that her baby died, but behind her back puts the baby up for adoption. I was an orphan and identified with this child's yearning and searching for his parents. In the end all i can say that it is a perfect film to watch with your family , with friends or even alone for a magical and unforgettable experience . I wish I had taken my daughter. The film requires the audience to have a somewhat willful suspension of reality as there are some slightly mystic themes interwoven in the storyline. I had goosebumps throughout the entire film. Kotek (from HATCHfest 2007 in Bozeman, Montana)Director: Kirsten Sheridan Starring: Freddie Highmore, Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jamia Simone Nash, Marian Seldes, Robin Williams.If you've ever questioned the impact of music on emotion, August Rush is a must-see that will bury any doubt for all time. I knew where he was coming from as he longed for his parents. The film tells a story of a orphan boy who is a musical genius and who believes that his parents will find one day .

My mother was French. Here's hoping studio support for the film will see screens increase after opening to take advantage of what should be excellent word of mouth. This is a fantastic film. The film tells a story of a orphan boy who is a musical genius and who believes that his parents will find one day . This is truly a symphony of a film. The cast, the story, the editing, the direction, the music, nothing is off about August Rush.

Evan is set to find his parents but come across a musical group of kids, who are making money for Wizzard, when Evan plays music, it's magical, Wizzard exposes Evan giving him a new name, August Rush and makes money off of him. Director Sheridan (Jim's daughter, Kirsten) keeps the reins on her comic Wizard, and Williams seems to subtly straddle the line between sympathetic and psychotic. Now I have composed myself, Im ready to leave a comment after watching this excellent film "August Rush" Im a married man of 38, and not ashamed to say, this film brought me to tears, not tears of sadness, but tears of joy.! I actually sobbed at the end. The blending of classical, rock and street-sounds music was phenomenal. Hence, if you don't have an imagination, you should stay home. If not, then the most you'll probably give it is an 'ok'. This film really struck a chord in my soul. I met her many years later in New York City when I was in my early twenties.

I knew where he was coming from as he longed for his parents. If you still have an inner child, and an imagination that has not been beaten out of you by the "practical and mature" world, then you will love this film.

"August Rush" touched something tender buried deep inside my soul seventy-six years ago.My father was killed in a car accident three days before I would have celebrated my third birthday. Featuring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as rock-star Louis and Keri Russell as New York Philharmonic cellist Layla, and starring Finding Neverland's heartbreak kid, Freddie Highmore, Rush delivers an experience that borders on the sublime and somewhat sentimental in a manner that rivals Neverland and would be reminiscent of Titanic if that ship had not sunk. If not, then the most you'll probably give it is an 'ok'.
