Saturday, April 19, Movie Review:
Lyla and Louis meet at a party after their respective concerts, and have a sexual encounter on the rooftop. The day after, they separate in a hurry, and are unable to maintain contact as Lyla is ushered away by her father to Chicago.
Lyla is also aware that she is pregnant.
Later, when in New York Cityafter an argument with her father over her unborn child, she is struck by a car. Due to the accident trauma, she gives birth prematurely, and her father secretly puts the baby boy up for adoption under her name, allowing Lyla to believe that her son died.
Evan has the savant-like ability to hear music wherever he is, making him a bullying target for the older orphans. Convinced that his parents will find him, Evan runs away to New York City, "following the music" in the hope it will lead him to his family.
Louis, who left the band the same night Lyla was struck, now lives in San Francisco as an agent, while Lyla has also given up performing and now lives in Chicago teaching music. Louis reconnects with his brothers at a birthday party for one of the other band members, and after an argument and fistfight over breaking up the band, he decides to reconnect with the woman he now knows is Lyla.
Lyla abandons her father to his fate and heads to New York to look for her son. Evan follows Arthur to his home in a condemned theater, and is taken in by Maxwell "Wizard" Wallace Robin Williamsa vagrant, arrogant, and aggressive musician who teaches homeless children music and employs them as street performers.
He gives Evan the stage name "August Rush" and tries to market him to clubs. Seeing the posters that Jeffries has posted for the runaway Evan, Wizard destroys all the ones he finds, hoping to keep Evan and his gift for his own gain.
Despairing, he ends up in New York, where he gets his band back together. After Jeffries meets Wizard and Arthur on the street and becomes suspicious, the police raid the derelict theatre in which Wizard and his "children" are living.
The police spot Arthur, but Evan draws their attention and runs; Wizard helps Evan evade the police, telling him never to reveal his real name to anyone.
Evan now "August" takes refuge in a church where a young girl, Hope Jamia Simone Nashintroduces him to the piano and written music. He picks up both skills so quickly that Hope gets the attention of the parish pastor Mykelti Williamsonwho takes August to Juilliard where he once again impresses the faculty.
While looking for him, she takes up the cello again and accepts an offer to perform with the Philharmonic at a series of concerts in Central Park.
August is selected to perform the rhapsody he has been composing at the same concert. However, Wizard interrupts the rehearsal and claims to be his father, and manages to pull August out of the school.
On the day of the outdoor concert, August is back in his spot in Washington Square, while Wizard makes plans to smuggle him around the country to play. He meets Louis and, unaware of their blood relationship, they have an impromptu guitar duet.
August tells him of his dilemma, and Louis encourages him to go. That evening, with help from Arthur, August escapes from Wizard through the subway and heads for his concert. Jeffries finds a misplaced flyer for "August Rush" with a picture, and realizing August is Evan, also heads for the concert.
August arrives in time to conduct his rhapsody, which attracts both Lyla and Louis to the audience, where they are reunited. August finishes his rhapsody and as he turns to discover his parents, he smiles knowing that he has been right all along.the movie of august rush is a very interesting story.

It is one of my favorite movie. It stars Kerri Russell and Robin Williams in it. It even has that little boy (Freddie Highmore) who plays from the Spiderwick Chronicles and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This movie is full of heart and soul.
There is beautiful music in it.
Nov 20, · Here is a movie drenched in sentimentality, but it's supposed to be. I dislike sentimentality where it doesn't belong, but there's something brave about the way "August Rush" declares itself and goes all the way with coincidence, melodrama and skillful tear-jerking.
I think more sensitive younger viewers, in particular, might really like it.3/5. Nov 20, · Here is a movie drenched in sentimentality, but it's supposed to be.
