August Rush

Today we watched a fantastic movie. It was a gift that my hubby had received for Father's Day. Since part of his gift was going to a concert to see a young prodigy performing on the guitar. I thought that a movie about a guitar prodigy was apropos. So, we gave him the movie, August Rush.

We both really enjoyed the movie. It's one of those movies that just makes you feel good. And, it made both my husband and I feel very inspired. I imagine that our home will be filled with more guitar playing than usual over the next few days. Its a story about childhood, love, music, and hope. It is definitely a movie that is filled with hope.

In addition to the feel good tone of the story line, I also really enjoyed the music. Throughout the movie, they took classical music from one stage and rock music from another and played them simultaneously. It created a beautiful effect with the haunting tones of the classical orchestra music and the driving force of the rock. It was a really neat effect paired together.

A quote from the movie..."The music is all around you, all you have to do is listen."
