August Rush

type
  • Movie

A tryst between a concert cellist (Keri Russell) and a rocker (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) begets music-prodigy August, who’s raised in an orphanage and eventually tries to find his parents. Kirsten Sheridan, who’s the daughter of Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot), and who co-wrote In America, had her actors practice playing their instruments. ”I would see Freddie [Highmore], and I was like, ”I don’t even want to hear you complain!” Russell says. ”I could fake guitar any day of the week. You try faking the cello!”
