We've been having a hard time finding movies we want to see this Holiday season. If you're in the same boat, and haven't seen August Rush- now you've got something to do Friday night. I’m a sucker for Robin Williams and that cute kid from Finding Neverland. I love, love, love this movie. It could have easily added a sex scene and chose not to, which is rare. The plot is too mature for children, but appropriate for teenagers and their parents. The movie is slow at times, and predictable, but the beauty of the film and the music, the wonderful music compensate for all flaws.
I don’t like Chick Flicks. I'd rather listen to William Hung's Christmas album than watch movies like Hope Floats and The Notebook. Live Free Die Hard was my favorite 2007 film until August Rush. This is by no means a 'girly' flim. I did watch most of the movie with tears streaming down my face (which doesn’t say much, this is the same girl who cried during the preview for I Am Sam)when the closing credits were rolling, you could hear the sniffles of the audience. Great 'date night' movie. You leave the theater feeling good.
