I did see August Rush and I absolutely loved the movie. I do think that music can connect us on a spiritual level. I also believe that music can help us to identify friends/family/loved ones based on having like spirits. I was really touched by the movie. It was different too...nice to see something wholesome that has never been done before. Very artistic and creative.
I loved all the actors in this movie, but it really didn't turn out that great. The musicality was excellent, but overall, it wasn't up to my standards. I am not used to Robin Williams as an evil character and personally, I think that he should stick to his funny lovable ways. I also thought that the movie was extremely slow paced and lost the viewers interest at times.
