Seen any good movies lately?

We rented August Rush because my Dad recommended it after watching it three times. I do love watching Freddie Highmore (who plays August) and I thought that anything that is worth watching three times has to be worth having a look at. August Rush is a contemporary musical retelling of Oliver Twist that is absolutely stunning. It captures a young boy's faith and unwaivering spirit amid a background of wonderful, predominantly original music. This is one of those rare movies that doesn't rely on dialogue; you need to watch it and actually witness what's happening while you experience the music in order to get the whole picture. Brilliant.

Must agree, whole heartedly! We all loved this film, Robin gave his usual excellent performance and even the little ones were transfixed to the viewer!
