This modern Oliver-style plot has some of the best music around! The "artsy" approach is often mesmerizing, and will hold your interest from beginning to end.

I totally enjoyed this movie. The scenes have an appealing fantasy element, while at the same time, the plot manages to explore true-to-life human situations such as bullying of those who are different.

The music is incredible, and mostly consists of original scores. It includes gospel, rock and classical, seamlessly integrated in a new way that works extremely well.

The plot is somewhat predictable and possibly a little "sappy", but those elements are easily overcome by the moment-to-moment execution of the story. Think of a modernized "Oliver" with Robin Williams as Fagin to a group of homeless, musically talented kids...plus extra elements of romance and intrigue, and you will have a bit of an idea about this movie.

The three main characters are all physically "beautiful" people who manage to convey the story with a minimum of dialog. Additional characters, including Terrence Howard as the social worker, Jamia Simone Nash as the young girl in the church choir, and Leon G. Thomas as the young boy who befriends the musical prodigy, contribute strong performances and pizazz.

Someone sitting near me stated it is impossible for even a prodigy to learn music so quickly and at such a young age... However, this is not true. Check out Jay Greenberg, a young music student currently studying at Julliard. In the end, this movie is at least an endorsement and celebration of the significance of music in our lives and at most a transcendent, fun experience to watch.

I rarely like to see any movie more than once, but definitely want to see this again. Take the family¬Öthis is for children, teens and adults. Don't miss it is my recommendation!

decent movie

In my point of view,it is too made-up story.Music leads separated family and then put together.It is so rare.The most unbelievable thing is his talent.He has three super talents,dealing with music instruments,composing music,distinguishing the sound surrounding the city.He made it at first sight.It is amazing.

Lovely modern day fairytale like story

August Rush (2007) is like a modern day fairytale. The movie is one to be enjoyed and it's meant to enchant it's audience. The plot centers around a young orphan boy who is a musical prodigy. He is on a mission to find his parents, with whom he has never meet. His mother (Keri Russell) is a musician who went to Juliard, she went to a party one night with a girlfriend of hers and ended up having sex with a male band member. She got pregnant as a result of that tryst. She was hit by a car and rushed to the hospital, her very controlling father forged her signature and put the baby up for adoption and told her when she awoke that she'd lost the baby. She doesn't contact the father or anything and they all go their separate ways. About 11 years later, the son is on a search for his parents, claiming he can sense them and he follows the music. The movie really takes off when he is searching for his parents and they are searching for each other too. That's where the fairytale part of the film kicks in. The acting is good for the most part. I really loved Jonathan Rhys Meyers in his role, very good casting decision. Russell was good as Lyla, the mother. And I loved Freddie Highmore as August Rush. He is such a great actor, especially for him to be that young. Robin Williams is good here too, he plays the antagonist, a kind of role he didn't usually play. This movie is just enchanting and I loved it! The writing isn't like Oscar worthy or anything but it's a very well made movie that'll keep your undivided attention the entire way through and will leave you feeling great. 10/10!
