An incredible journey moving at the speed of sound...

August Rush tells the story of a charismatic young Irish guitarist (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and a sheltered young cellist (Keri Russell) who have a chance encounter one magical night above New York's Washington Square, but are soon torn apart, leaving in their wake an infant, August Rush, orphaned by circumstance. Now performing on the streets of New York and cared for by a mysterious stranger (Robin Williams), August (Freddie Highmore) uses his remarkable musical talent to seek the parents from whom he was separated at birth.

I never saw a trailer,clips or a review except from what I read on the back of the case, thought id give it a chance. I cant say i like Mozart and classical music but this is simply amazing.
The acting superb, the story heartfelt and the musical score absolutley emotional.
Im a fan of robin williams and love his acting glad he had a role in this film, Freddie Highmore adds innocence to the film sheer brilliance.
Ok you might find it a little long winded and maybe slightly boring if your a action/horror fanatic, but if you like hearfelt stories, with a good plot and a great group of actors then please buy this dvd. im sure you wont be disapointed.

Lyla Novacek (Keri Russell) is a brilliant cellist who has just finish performing a concert in New York City. Lyla goes out on the town with her girlfriend and end up at a party near New Yorks Washington Square. She meets Louis Connelly (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) an Irish guitar player. They share the love of music and end up falling in love and bonding together that night. It was the most wonderful night in Lylas life. Lyla must rush back to the hotel where her father Thomas (William Sadler) is waiting for her. Lyla promised to meet Louis in Washington Square, but her father forces her to go to her next concert. They are like two ships that pass in the night, never to see each other again, except for the fact that Lyla is now with child. Sadly, Lyla is in a car accident and the unborn child is lost. Eleven years pass and Lylas father is on his death bed, and he must tell her the truth that he secretly gave Lylas baby boy up for adoption. August Rush (Freddie Highmore) is her child, who was born with the gift to hear music all around him. He believes that he will find his parents if they only hear his music, because they are truly bonded by their music.

This is one of those movies that you never see advertised, in fact when we saw it the cinema was nearly empty! But like Gregory's Girl, August Rush is a lovely feel-good film, with a fine blend of hope, unrequited longing and an eventual climax where everything turns out right in the end. If you believe in the the power of love and the magic of music, then you really should see this film. There wasn't a completely dry eye in the house!

 This movie will melt your heart and soul
