What could be better than Freddie Highmore, Keri Russell, Johnathan Rhys Meyers, Terrance Howard and Robin Williams on screen together? August Rush should be a slam dunk with these folks, but the plot of this film is so ridiculous and full of unbelievable situations, that I found this a very frustrating story. Two musicians have a child that is a musical prodigy, yet they know nothing of him for 12 years. The reunion of this family was mind boggling for me. The acting and music hold this film up, but not enough to make it make sense.
