Now Watching: August Rush

I can’t remember the first time I watched this movie. But since then, I have watched it again several times after. The other day, while hubby was searching for a movie to watch, he found this again and played it. It never fails to amuse me and sometimes makes me cry, haha! I know, it's really not a tear jerker kind of movie but I am very easily moved to tears even by movies like this. Never mind that I watched it hundreds of times already.

August Rush is about this young orphan named Evan Taylor, who has an innate ability to hear music everywhere. From the sound of cars on the streets, people talking, winds blowing, ball bouncing, as in everywhere! He has this firm belief that he'd be able to find his parents through his music.

Anyway, I love the look on Evan’s (a.k.a. August Rush) eyes whenever he hears music from his surroundings. I love the look on his eyes the first time he played a guitar. And I love the look on his eyes while he was conducting the band that was playing the rhapsody he composed. He was so good he didn’t have to use portable music stands at guitar center to hold his music piece to guide him in conducting them because he knows it from his heart. The look on his eyes when he first saw his parents together was also unforgettable. Freddie Highmore's, the child actor who played Evan/August, acting was so convincing I was on the verge of believing it’s real. :-P Kidding!

But really, it's a nice movie and I don't mind watching it over again. 

Have you watched August Rush yet? Did you like it, too?
