August Rush

November 27, 2007 at 8:55 pm | Posted in Movies | Leave a comment

On Saturday night, Best Friend and I went to our local movie theatre to see August Rush. With popcorn and orange soda in hand, we rushed to get good seats. I’ve been seeing previews for this film for at least a month, maybe longer, and was beginning to wonder when this movie will come out. It’s not everyday that a group of your favorite celebs appear in the same film.

If you like your movies with a box of Kleenex on the side, then August Rush is your movie. Yes, it’s a sappy, somewhat melodramatic film that requires you to put reality on hold but at least the music is incredible, the actors are beautiful to look at, particularly the luminous Keri Russell and Jonathon Rhys Meyers, and the scenery is striking. I have loved Freddie Highmore since seeing him in Finding Neverland, he is very talented and I hope he does not become one of those tragic E True Hollywood stories. I also got a kick out of seeing Amanda from Ugly Betty in a short role.  I don’t think this movie will be nominated for any awards (Oscar definitely not, maybe Golden Globes) but I enjoyed the film anyway.
