Every once in a while, I see a movie that strikes a chord with in me somewhere. I recently saw a movie, August Rush, that has been out for quite a while now. I have no idea why I never saw it before, but I can tell you that I love this movie.
It’s about a young boy who hears music in just about everything. He has an uncanny ability to play some very interesting music on a guitar, even though he had never before picked one up. Coupled with a prodigal ability to understand the notes of his music, and copy them down. Young Even Taylor, August Rush, was basically stolen from his mother at birth. His grandfather putting him up for adoption without his mothers knowledge, and then telling her he died. He believe that if he can make his music, and have as many people as possible hear it, His parents will find him by following the music. The story has many more folds to it of course, and you’ll have to watch it for yourself.
It’s a heart warming tale, one that will have you bouncing through many emotions. One moment you’ll be happy, then sad, then happy, and every once in awhile you’ll be as mad as can be. I have never been so pissed at a character played by Robin Williams as I was with this movie.
