A sentimental film that will surely tug on your heartstrings,August Rush tells the fairy-tale story of a musical prodigy searching for his parents.

The film celebrates the beauty of music as we follow  Evan Taylor, a young boy living in an orphanage who turns to music to guide him towards his parents, believing that “The music is all around us,all you have to do is listen”.

Though the plot may seem implausible to those who prefer realistic cinema, the movie delivers an evocative and beautiful message about the power of music and how it connects us.
