i don't want to sound so exaggerated but this movie is just so brilliant. i was actually cursing ala claudine barretto on most parts of the film most especially on its last 4 minutes. and almost felt sad that it has actually ended. oh well...
this is my second keri russell film for the week. the waitress which i saw a couple of days ago was also really heartwarming. i'm beginning to discover how lovely keri russell is.
august rush is a highly musical film marrying classical and rock and bearing some streetbeat protege of a son. true to its title, watching it does give you that kind of rush, some high brought on not only by the power of music but also with how love is able to transcend time and distances apart.
and yeah, i've to say freddie highmore is just becoming a handsome fine young man.
"You never quit on your music. No matter what happens. Cuz anytime something bad happens to you, that's the one place you can escape to and just let it go. I learned it the hard way. And anyway, look at me. Nothing bad's gonna happen. You gotta have a little faith. "
