I went with a girlfiend to the movie for the first time tonight since Woob was tiny, tiny, tiny. That was good. We went to see “No Reservations” with Catherine Zeta Jones. It was way different than I expected it to be…much better, but look out because its tearjerker in parts. Anyway…that’s not the purpose of this post.
They showed a preview for the movie “August Rush” due out in November. Robin Williams and Keri Russel are in it, and it looks like an adoption movie. The online info suggests the baby is “orphaned by circumstance” but the scenes in the preview have someone telling Keri Russel’s character “You have to give the baby up.” Other scenes showed this little boy apparently growing up in some sort of home, and possibly on the streets, trying to find his parents, and also shows Keri Russel going back to the hospital to find or reclaim her son, but she doesn’t know his name. Someone asks her “well, if you didn’t want him, why are you looking for him?” to which she replied “I always wanted him.”
The whole thing looked heartbreaking and I hope against all hope that they did the film well. We shall see.
