The movie is perfectly cast and is extremely visually appealing. It felt like each character was in their place in a world that matched their story, which made the movie feel as seamless and flowing like August's music. I didn't want it to end because while it showed both the good and bad of society, the story was uplifting and made you see the benefits of holding on tightly to what you believe in.
I also appreciated that Terrence Howard was cast as a good guy. I like him, but he tends to always be put in these smart mouthed smug roles,. I also did not mind my Felicity flashbacks with Keri Russell and the two VERY attractive Irish men (ok, so one's officially Australian, but whatever!). I strongly suggest that anyone that likes emotional character and plot driven stories see this movie.
And now for my slightly related quote:
