Review: August Rush

One of the most contrived and cliche story outline you’ll come across, but if you can live past the first half hour, it will get better. First you have to get past the millions of coincidences that set up the story, but more happenstance awaits to knit the ending.
Still, it’s all in good nature, the whole music binds us all/universal harmony mambo jambo is highly inspirational, and the movie shines radiantly with hope, making it a perfect tearjerker.
Topping it all you have a steller cast (it’s clear the utterly cute Freddie Highmore can carry a movie, stealing the show a few years back in Finding Neverland, and you have the ultra-drama queen Keri Russell to boot), and of course an interesting sound track.7+.
