Details Release Date: Nov 21, 2007; Rated: PG; Length: 112 Minutes; Genre: Drama; With: Freddie Highmore, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Keri Russell; Distributor: Warner Bros.

Freddie Highmore plays the title role in August Rush, a modern-day Oliver Twist with mystical musical abilities. Robin Williams (yes, I'm afraid so) plays a kind of Manhattan-based Fagin with a touch of Midnight Cowboy to his wardrobe. And ants will play havoc in any cynic's pants as this loopy, goopy fairy tale about a kid looking for his parents oozes to its predictable finish. As August's kin and airy artists themselves, Keri Russell and Jonathan Rhys Meyers cast their eyes to heaven, saintlike, as they pretend to make music. D+
