This review is from: August Rush [DVD] (DVD)
I found August Rush quite difficult to get into in the early part of the film. It has been described as a modern day fairytale but I found it more of a symphony with stunning cinematograhy. And, like many symphonies initially it demands your concentration but will gradually draw you into the sights and sounds and emotions and ultimately leave your soul singing. The music is the backbone to the film and often communicates the emotions directly with little need for dialogue. If you love the mystery that is music then you will love this film.
Add this to your "must see" list ...and tell a friend.
