Movie Quote Monday


August Rush: Listen. Can you hear it? The music. I can hear it everywhere. In the wind...in the air...in the light. It's all around us. All you have to do is open yourself up. All you have to do...is listen.

Oh goodness. My love for this move knows no bounds! The actors (mostly Freddie Highmore, but Keri Russell and Jonathan Rhys Meyers do a great job too), the story, and most of all the music. I love how the audience can hear what August hears! The sounds that no one else notices. He hears music everywhere and it's beautiful! And the music he creates is incredible too, all so he can lead his parents back to him.

It's full of music, the love of a mother and child, swoon-worthy romance (it's subtle, but it will definitely sweep you off your feet!), and a wonderful adventure full of connections and relationships. Each person who meets August is changed by him and they, in turn, help guide him on his journey. Lovely and gorgeous and just go watch it as soon as you can! The soundtrack is pretty awesome too. Here's one of my favorite songs:






Micah hasn't posted a linkup for these in a while, but I wanted to share this one today anyway. So I'm hoping she doesn't mind. Go check out her lovely blog when you can! :)

  1. I saw this too and enjoyed it. I liked the music in it very much and the boy is adorable! Seems I remember it has some foul language but not a lot. I watched it at my Bible study teacher's home and she was embarrassed--she didn't remember it had the bad language.

    1. I'd forgotten about the language, Karen. It's actually been a little while since I've seen it. But it is an wonderful movie. Your poor friend though. That's no fun when unexpected things happen like that.

  2. Didn't like this film as well as I'd thought but it was very good! Plus as you say the acting was good - I think seeing Jonathan in an icky role turned me off of all his other characters. ;)

    Great quote and movie sum-up, Kara.

    1. I've not seen him play an icky character yet, Rissi. But I can see where that could turn you off! :)

      I just really love this little movie. It didn't seem to get a whole lot of attention when it first came out, but it deserved attention for the acting at least, if not the story itself. I think Freddie Highmore did a great job.
