Summary: In Watching this movie you will find some discontinuty problems with the music matching the motions. At the Organ scene the music swells while August is playing but the hands of the player remain still. In the Concert scene you will find that the Orchestra begins without the conductor starting them.
Summary: This is one of my very favorite movies of all time, among those such as Crash and Patch Adams, that truly reveals the places of music and depth that goes beyond common understanding and the charts. You will never forget this touching, warm, and heart-tugging creation!
Pros: Broad Appeal, Emotionally Engaging, Engaging Characters, Great Cinematography, Original Story, Talented Cast
Excerpt: It's very hard these days to find a family film that I can put on for my 15 year old daughter and not make her feel like I am trying "daddy" her. This film captured her attention as well as the rest of the familie's.
Excerpt: My favorite part of this movie is the unique styly of guitar playing... Not only is that first scene when he starts smacking that guitar around literally music to my ears and in a surround sound setting that makes me hit the back button to watch it again but is something that makes your mouth drop.
Excerpt: Very wonderful film, heartwarming and truly genuine feeling. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys music. PQ Very good, AQ was excellent, extras was disappointed with but does not diminish the overall movie. Highly Recommended
Excerpt: August Rush appears to be another movie flying in under the radar but it really deserves a little hype and recognition. It's a really good movie and very moving. I enjoyed it and recommend it.
