I did not have high expectations going into this movie. Boy was I surprised when I loved it. August Rush stars Freddie Highmore as an orphaned child who ends up being a music prodigy. Keri Russell, Robin Williams, Terrence Howard, and Jonathon Rhys Meyers also have major roles. Although the romance story and the story of a lost boy trying to get back to his parents were both wonderful, it was the role music played that made this film great. There was so much great musicianship from not only Rush, but everywhere. I had never seen Robin Williams play such a mean and dark character and I think I enjoyed it more than his sometimes not funny and annoying comedy roles. I absolutely recommend this movie, especially to those who love music.
