Event Description: Russian Community Forum on Childhood Immunization – “August Rush,” in this unusual drama from 2007, Evan, an orphaned 11-year-old musical prodigy runs away to New York convinced that his ability to hear music at all times and in all places will help him locate his parents, especially his long-lost mother, a talented cellist, who thought her son had died at birth. Along the way, Evan is provided shelter by a vagrant street guitarist, Maxwell “Wizard” Wallace, ably portrayed by the Robin Williams. Williams teaches homeless children to play music and employs them as street performers. The title of the film derives from the stage name assigned Evan by Wizard, when Wizard starts getting club gigs for the prodigious young guitarist. The film, directed by Kirsten Sheridan (In America, Patterns) received an Academy Award nomination for best song (“Raise It Up”), and features music ranging from Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E Minor, along with works by Van Morrison, Mark Mancina and Billie Holiday, among others. August Rush is a powerful drama whose central characters are united and a family healed by the power of music. (1 hour, 54 minutes) Rated PG.
