August Rush is the story of an eleven-year-old boy who is raised by the state of NY searching for his parents, who do not even know he exists.  It is pretty impressive for a woman to have a child and not know about it, but Keri Russell’s character does it.  I think that the movie is not only about an eleven-year-old, but probably written by one too.  Watching the movie is like listening to a little kid tell a story.  “But then they are all in New York, but like he hears music so he knows his parents are musicians and he has never played music, but then he gets to go to Julliard and he is the best student in the school, but then he has to go because of this mean guy…”  I like Robin Williams reprising his role as Peter Pan.
