Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

Top 50 Greatest NYC Movies — #3

August Rush (dir. Kristen Sheridan, 2007)

08-29 August Rush

New York is a city of cultures and classes. All of them are studied in depth in this charming modernization of Oliver Twist. Everything from the cultural elite of Juilliard, to the homeless street musicians of Washington Square, to the church missions of Brooklyn makes a crucial appearance in this film. Every race, color, creed, and income level is as well represented in this film as it is in the city itself.
