For Music Lovers: August Rush

If you love music, you'll love this film.

If you love tear jerkers with a happy ending, you'll love this movie.

If you can suspend disbelief and love a totally unlikely but thoroughly enjoyable fable, you'll love this production.

Favorite quotes from the film:

"You know what music is? God's little reminder that there's something else besides us in this universe; harmonic connection between all living beings, everywhere, even the stars."

"The music is all around you, all you have to do is listen."

Here's a trailer

This movie combines the classical (Keri Russell's character playing with the New York Philharmonic)
with the contemporary (Jonathan Rhys Meyers's character playing with a rock band).

August is a modern-day Mozart, a musical prodigy to whom music comes as naturally as breathing!

Here he is conducting the New York Philharmonic in a rendition of his composition, August's Rhapsody.

Here from Bonnie's blog, and I just had to say that my family and I saw this film the other day, and you are SO right! It was lovely and refreshing. My husband said it was a tiny bit mushy for him, but he really did enjoy it. He's the musician in our family, but we are all music lovers. Your blog is so informative, just like Bonnie's. Thanks for allowing me to look around.
