August Rush

Yesterday, my teacher showed me kinda good movie titled August Rush.it was drama and bored at first but if really pay attention you may say that it's great!A ugust Rush is a 2007 American drama film directed by Kirsten Sheridan and written by Paul Castro, Nick Castle, and James V. Hart, and produced by Richard Barton Lewis. It has been referred to as an up-to-date reworking of the Oliver Twist story by Charles Dickens.[2]
12-year-old Evan Taylor (Freddie Highmore) grows up an outcast in a home for boys, all the while believing that his parents are alive. He can hear music in everything: the light, the wind, rustling leaves. He believes that he can hear the music from his parents. He believes that they always wanted him and would come and get him someday.

He meets a social service worker, Richard Jeffries (Terrence Howard), of the New York Child Services Department. Evan tells him he does not want to be adopted. Jeffries likes Evan and gives him his card. He wants Evan to confide in him if the need should ever arise.
Through a series of flashbacks, Evan's parents are revealed to be Lyla Novacek (Keri Russell), a famous teenage concert cellist, and Louis Connelly (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), an Irish guitarist and lead singer of a rock band. They met at the same party and spent a romantic night together. Due to Lyla's strict father, Lyla was unable to meet Louis where she'd agreed to and they parted, apparently never to see each other again.

Lyla became pregnant with their child. Her father did not approve of this, wanting instead for Lyla to have a successful career without the obstacle of a child. After an argument with her father, Lyla ran out of a restaurant and was hit by a car. While in the hospital, she gave birth to a son. The last thing she was aware of was the nurses telling her that the baby's heartbeat was falling. When she wakes, her father implies that the child didn't make it. Unbeknownst to her, the baby survived and her father had forged her signature on the adoption papers. Both Louis and Lyla gave up their performing careers after losing each other, and neither was aware of their son's existence.

Evan has a very strong faith that if he could learn to play the music, he will have a chance to be found by his parents. He believes that they will hear him. So he runs away to New York City, in the process losing Jeffries' card. He meets Arthur (Leon G. Thomas III), a pre-teen street-corner guitarist, playing in Washington Square Park. He follows Arthur home and is taken in by Maxwell "Wizard" Wallace (Robin Williams), who houses various orphans and runaways, teaching and employing them to play music on the streets and taking a large cut of their tips. Evan immediately proves to be a musical child prodigy. Wizard enlists him and gives him the name "August Rush", convincing him he will be sent back to the orphanage if his real name is ever discovered.

Lyla only discovers that her son is alive when her father, on his deathbed, confesses what actually happened. Lyla immediately sets out to New York to look for her now 12-year-old son. Louis, meanwhile, is harassed by his brother and former bandmate at a party, causing him to re-examine his life. He ultimately discovers Lyla's full name and whereabouts in Chicago, and quits his job to go there, hoping to reconcile.

After a raid on Wizard's abandoned theater home by the police, triggered by Jeffries, Evan takes refuge in an inner-city church. He again impresses with his natural musical talent and is brought to the Juilliard School, where he is enrolled in classes as "August Rush." He excels at his studies, and a work he composes is chosen to be performed by the New York Philharmonic at a concert in Central Park. Unfortunately, Wizard barges into the dress rehearsal, and "August", under threat of being revealed as Evan, reluctantly follows him back to his life of performing music on the streets.

Meanwhile, Lyla has discovered Evan's identity through Jeffries, and has decided to stay in New York while searching for her son. While there, she decides to resume her career as a cellist, and is invited to play in the same Central Park concert. Louis, being wrongly told by Lyla's former neighbor in Chicago that Lyla has since married, also returns to New York to resume playing with his former band. He has a chance meeting with Evan, who has returned to his corner at Washington Square Park, and they play an improvised piece together, although neither knows their blood relationship to the other. Louis encourages "August" not to give up in his music, and not to miss his concert.

The night of the concert, Evan finally chooses to run from Wizard, helped by Arthur, in favor of performing at his concert. After his own concert with his band at a local nightclub, Louis sees Evan's pseudonym along with Lyla's name on a sign billing the concert, and races on foot to Central Park. Meanwhile, Jeffries connects Evan to his alias after discovering a misplaced CPS flyer for August Rush, posted after his disappearance from Juilliard, and also heads to the concert. Evan conducts his rhapsody, attracting both Lyla and Louis to the front of the crowd, where they meet and reconcile, Lyla also realizing that "August" is her son Evan. At its conclusion, when Evan turns around to see Lyla and Louis standing hand in hand, he knows that he is reunited with his mother and father at last.
