Separated by events they could not control but bound by love and by music, three people search for what they lost and what will make their lives complete ... each other. Keri Russell (Waitress, "Felicity"), Jonathan Rhys Meyers ("The Tudors") and Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Family, Finding Neverland) star with Robin Williams in this amazing, heartwarming tale of two very different musicians who fall in love only to be torn apart, both unaware that they have a child, a musical prodigy who is trying to find them as much as they are trying to find each other, a boy destined for greatness as the rising young star August Rush.

Critics Consensus: Though featuring a talented cast, August Rush cannot overcome the flimsy direction and schmaltzy plot.

A music box trying to pass itself off as an orchestra.

However predictable, a good ol' fashioned happy ending is always welcome. But bring a box of tissu...

Common Sense Says
Pleasant, emotional, fable-like family drama.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this emotional is fairly good family entertainment, with sexual content at a minimum and lots of warmth and great musicianship. That said, there is a bit of violence (a man flashes a knife at children), some social drinking, and a few iffy words ("damn," "pissed," etc.). And since the first half of the movie relies on lots of flashbacks -- which could be confusing for younger kids -- it's probably a better pick for tweens and teens.
