There is something about August Rush that I completely connected with. There is so much heart and soul in this film, that I become an emotional wreck ever time I watch it.
Freddie Highmore is so great! I have watched just about everything he has played in, and he continues to get better. I originally watched this movie because of Johnathan Rhys Meyers, because..well, do I really need an explanation. His voice is so, so incredibly sexy. And Robin Williams is beyond creepy in this part.
Anyways, the thought that music binds this entire family is beautiful. The way it all comes together in the end is spectacular. Again, I am an emotional wreck by the ending credits.
If you haven't seen August Rush yet, do it.
