August Rush

Title: August Rush
Director: Kirsten Sheridan
Story: Nick Castle, Paul Castro

This is a very inspiring movie. So i just want to share this with you all. It was first introduce to us by our Css Rock President, Joey Aiiko.


There's music in the wind and sky. Can you hear it? And there's hope. Can you feel it? The boy called August Rush can. The music mysteriously draws him, penniless and alone, to New York City in the quest to find - somehow, someway - the parents separated from him years earlier. And along the way he may also find the musical genius hidden within him.

August Rush is a part romance, part gentle fantasy, but this sweet drama is all heart. When young cellist Lyra (Keri Russell) and rock musician Louis (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) meet at a party in the mid 1990s, its love at first sight, and they spend the night in each other's arm. But Lyla'a father forces them apart, even through she later learns she's pregnant. Later, an accident lands Lyla in the hospital, and through her father tells her that her baby died, the child survives and is given up for adoption. August Rush jumps to the present and begins to follow Evan (Freddie Highmore), an 11 year old who has grown up in a boys' home. As Evan embarks on a crusade to find his parents, he imagines he can communicate with them through his gift for music. His journey to New York City brings him into contact with Wizard (Robin WIlliams), a man eager to capitalize on the child prodigy's talent. Wizard gives Evan the name August Rush as he begins performing all over the city, but the boy's ultimate goal is to find the parents he has never met. He's a gifted young actor, and this emotional story is the perfect venue for his acting.
