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! :)
