Movie August Rush (2007)

Unfortunately, the movie's plot was one-dimensional.

August Rush (Freddie Highmore)

While the plot wasn't as good as I remembered, I still enjoyed the film's music.

Overall, due to the weak plot, I would not recommend the movie to most people. However, those with a strong affinity and appreciation of music may find the movie uplifting and/or inspiring.

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 55% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

Lyla Novacek (Keri Russell)

Instant Comments:
This start was a lot more obvious than I remembered.
But there was one scene which made Ada wonder if this couple wasn't his parents
Oh, same spot. Means The Wizard was the person his parents were listening to.

Louis Connelly (Jonathan Rhys Meyers)

I thought the little girl screamed (in a high pitch) when she returned from school, instead she's was in awe and then excitedly rushed to the reverend.
I didn't remember how Wizard convinced August to return to him.
I forgot the fine details of the ending. For example, that Lyla was walking away, how Louis decided to leave the cab, and that Jeffries saw the fallen flier.

Maxwell "Wizard" Wallace (Robin Williams)

Ada appeared to feel that the ending was abrupt.
I love the music of the movie and the story was decent. Maybe the plot could have been better and/or it could have been presented differently...
