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.
