My review is on the movie August Rush. 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. And I do not know where they found all these adorable children to play in this movie, they are cute. Especially the little black girl. I think she has the best lines in the whole movie. And she has a singing voice to match. I am sure people enjoy this movie purely because of the high quality soundtrack and professional (good looking) actors.

This movie directed by Kirsten Sheridan; written by Nick Castle and James V. Hart, based on a story by Paul Castro and Mr. Castle; director of photography, John Mathieson; edited by William Steinkamp; music by Mark Mancina; production designer, Michael Shaw; produced by Richard Barton Lewis; released by Warner Brothers Pictures. Running time: 1 hour 52 minutes. Stared by: Freddie Highmore (August Rush), Keri Russell (Lyla Novacek), Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Louis Connelly), Terrence Howard (Richard Jeffries), Robin Williams (Wizard) and William Sadler (Thomas Novacek).

Months after their night of love, the pregnant Lyla is hit by a car and gives birth prematurely. In the most preposterous of the many ludicrous plot twists...
