August Rush

The other day I watched "August Rush" and one thing that really hit me was when Wizard (played by Robin Williams) asked Evan/August, "Close your eyes and tell me what you want to be when you grow up. It can be anything. What do you want to be?"

Evan/August answers, "Found."

Why did it hit me? Because the story is about an orphan boy whose mother and father didn't even know he existed. How could that be? I'm not going to spoil the story to you he he he...but anyhow, can you imagine his wish to be found by his own birth parents? He's always got this strong feeling that his own parents want him, thus he wants to be found by them.

This part hit me so much 'coz I've always known that I'm wanted by my parents. Even my Dad (a Chinese who usually wants boys as heir) had always wanted to have a girl as a first child. I just want to cherish that fact that I've always been wanted, 'coz not everybody is wanted that way.

To those of you who feel unwanted, I hope that out there in this big big world you'll find people who WANT you just the way you are.

P.S. The movie is not a regular movie 'coz it incorporates lots of music in it, but it makes it different than other movies.


  1. Great post! You really made me think. And I'll be looking out for the movie. ;-)

  2. Sounds like a good movie!! =) Great post, Mel. Yes, may everyone know they are wanted ... if not by anyone they love here on earth, I hope they know they are wanted by The Lord =)

  3. @M: I wonder which part makes you think he he...

    @Shin: If you love music, it's a good movie. :-D And you're SO right about being wanted by The Lord. :-)))
