Movie recommendation: August Rush

Russ & I went to the hospital and watched a lovely movie with CL last night. (Yes, for those of you who we haven't talked to in the last 24 hours, CL got yanked back into the hospital. After finishing her IVs she managed to get influenza, which has a nasty respiratory component. Due to the fact that she's supposed to leave for school in about 18 days they decided we can't wait and see, and so it's back on IV's again. Hopefully they'll let her out tomorrow, but the doctor is on right now who always wants her to stay at least a week. So we'll see....)

So back to the movie. Very lovely. Very cool music. Very sweet. And absolutely *nothing* to complain about, except that Robin Williams as a kind of homeless Fagan really creeped me out. Oops--and I will also complain that I could have used about 15 more seconds of ending...IMO Enchanted provided that extra few seconds of ending that make me feel satisfied. This didn't quite get there--I'd put this ending with Sleepless in Seattle. But watch it anyway!

I'm glad it was good!!! I've been wanting to see it for a while and this is the first time I've heard anyone else talk about it!

I totally adored it, and when I woke up in the morning Nathan said he had watched it twice during the night and really REALLY loved it. i could have used another 20 minutes of ending. though im not sure how the actual lives of three such dreamy individuals would actually look!!!! probably like if I had married two other people just like me!!!!
