I watched "August Rush" the other night and this is what I've been waiting for. I've been waiting for a really good movie to come out for what seems like a year; well, here it is. This is such a creative show. It has a bit of a David Copperfield theme, meshed with the overriding theme of our love for music. It has a strong romantic element but not a chick flick by any means. Hollyweird has done their best to push every feel good button within us, and they did it well. It is pure fantasy but the kind we all want to believe in. I'll give you one example of the creative side, the little boy who has the "gift of music", is standing in the middle of New York with all the sounds of the city; traffic, horns, jack hammers, people roller skating, and the overall buzz of a big city, but this gifted boy listens as the producers weave all these sounds into a subtle rhapsody. Truly a work of art. Don't miss this one, it is good for anyone from about 12 years up. PG
