“However predictable, a good ol’ fashioned happy ending is always welcome. But bring a box of tissues: A good cry is to be expected as well.” – Atlanta Journal-Constitution

FILM SYNOPSIS

A musically gifted orphan, Evan (Freddie Highmore), runs away from his orphanage and searches New York City for his birth parents. On his journey, he’s taken under the wing of the Wizard (Robin Williams), a homeless man who lives in an abandoned theater. After discovering his talent, the Wizard gives Evan the name “August Rush” and devises a plan to profit from his talent. Little does Evan know that his parents, Lyla (Keri Russell) and Louis (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), are searching for him too.
