August Rush

This is about a believe.

“Sometimes world try to knock it out of you.

But I believe in music, the way some people believe in fairy tales”.

This is about a fear of hope.

“What if they don’t ever come? Hardly remember what my mom looks like, u know?”

This is about optimistic.

“Well, if they don’t find us, we’ll just have to go find them”.

This is about such a little strong faith.

“Because anytime, something bad happens to you, it’s the one place you can escape to & just let it go”. “You have got a little faith”.

This is about

August Rush

Irama hentak jantung, berdegup, meronta, hendak menemui Sang wanita, yang merinduinya. Itulah saat hati dan mata bersua, dalam satu tatap, Love at first sight.

Pintu taksi dibanting, dengan segenggam keraguan langkah, ia berteriak “Lyla!”.

“Lyla!” sekali lagi panggilnya, kemudian “Lyla! Lyla!” kali ini sambil melompat.

Asa yang tertahan, masa depan yang gamang, hidup yang tidak dapat ia punyai sendiri. Lyla Novacek terdorong lemah, “Get in to the car!”, bentak Sang Ayah. Saat itulah, ia merelakan hasrat hatinya, melepaskan keinginannya. She has to say good bye to Louis Connelly, pria yang menunggunya dari seberang jalan.

“Louis! Do u remember what Da used to say about princesses?”, Marshall bertanya.

“They’re always looking for their prince. And u ain’t no prince brother!”, lanjut teman satu band Louis tersebut.

Satu jawaban cerdas, “How would you know?”, ucap Louis.

—————————-And the journey of 11 years begin—————————–

Anak laki-laki itu, bernama Evan Taylor, dan kisah yang telah digariskan, mengombang-ambingkannya dalam penantian, menjadi misteri, tapi ia tak membiarkan abstraknya dunia, memadamkan impiannya. Ia yakin, “the ones that give him music” is listening.

Tidaklah mudah, menurut saya, bagi seorang anak yang dititipkan di sebuah panti asuhan sejak bayi, untuk memiliki keyakinan yang kuat akan sesuatu. There is something about music, that makes him alive.

Anak-anak yang lain belum dapat bervisi seperti Evan untuk, menemukan orang tua Evan. Its seems impossible, u know?. Keduanya terpisah di dua tempat yang berbeda, moreover, Sang Ibu, Lyla, tidak mengetahui, bahwa anaknya masih hidup.

Dan, begitulah skenario Allah, an amazing journey begin.

Evan Taylor, berangkat ke New York, hendak menemui seorang pemerhati anak yang pernah mengunjungi pantinya beberapa waktu silam. Sayang, bising suara alam membuainya, sehingga, Evan beraksi laksana seorang komposer di taman kota. Baginya, asap yang keluar dari cerobong asap, klakson mobil, kantung keresek yang tertiup angin, bunyi kereta bawah tanah, dan kicau burung adalah melody.

Evan hampir mencapai klimaks nada-nadanya, ketika tangannya membuka, dan “Whushh..!!”, hembusan angin menerbangkan nomor kontak Mr. Jeffries.

Is there still? A way to find the will?

Evan follow the music, as if music his his soul, by listen to the heart beat, we’ll find the way, and we’ll be safe.

Its 11 years already, Lyla is walking down the street with a lil’ cute blonde girl, hm,,when I look at this scene, I was suddenly said, “Its over, she get a new family”.

“Megan!”, a women yelled from the opposite road. Anak kecil bernama Megan itu menyalami Lyla, lantas melompat, memeluk Ibunya. Hmm,,And in her eyes,,in Lyla eyes, I could see, how hard, she keep the pain.

Lyla is now, consider as a music teacher that not play music again.

Musik telah lenyap dari kehidupan Lyla, cello-nya soak, melody-nya sumbang. She life without her soul, without her beat, sacrificing,,

“I’m talking about when everyone else goes home”, said Lizzy, Lyla mate.

As for me, it’s a hard life, I know how it feels, when we have to kill our will. Its hurt, Lyla is being force to live the life as somebody else, hard life, hard decision.

And Louis? He leave the band, and have a unhappy life with his office-work and Jennifer, Louis nowday girlfriend.

Petikan gitar mengalun di tengah kota, menarik rasa curiga dari para pejalan kaki, membuat mereka mengeluarkan receh untuk sang pengamen yang memetik gitar dengan menakjubkan! Evan Taylor, dan gitar telah merasuki dirinya!

“Yea!”, ucap Sang Wizard.

Lyla menolak undangan untuk tampil di koser Philharmonic’s di New York, Evan menjadi pengamen jalanan, Louis, menghadiri ulang tahun Nick, teman lamanya, mendapatkan satu tinju dari Marshall, ditinggal Jennifer, dan mulai melamunkan Lyla Novacek.

Menyetuh kembali gitar yang telah lama ia simpan, mendapati kenangannya bersama Lyla. Jujur, aku gak tau, kenapa saat itu, Louis mengambil langkah untuk ‘taste’ kehidupan band-nya dulu, mungkin semua orang punya masa seperti ini, ya?masa dimana, mereka memendam sebagian diri mereka, hingga suatu saat, sebagian diri ini akan terpanggil, ada yang mengumpulkan kemampuannya untuk meraih kehidupan yang dirindukan tersebut, ada juga yang memilih untuk menyerah. Dan Louis, memilih untuk mendengarkan suara hatinya, dia menenteng tas-nya, terbang ke tempat dimana Lyla berada..

“Where is he?”, Tanya Lyla, antara bahagia, sulit untuk percaya dan tangis yang tertahan, saat ayahnya yang terbaring lemah di masa tua-nya menuturkan bahwa, dulu, The Baby Boy isn’t die.

Said she is crazy, and nobody gonna believe, said that everyone else is asking her to just give up! But no! She’ll fight for the whole of her life, finding her baby! She’ll listen up to what’s her heart that say, the boy is still alive! Somewhere, where? Where? Where? She dunno,,but,,

“Do u have children Mr. Jeffries? ,,,Then u’ll know”, said Lyla to Mr. Jeffries in the kid-care office.

In my own words, let me say, “If u ask me logically, I cant explain it. I dunno, I could only feel it. And I don’t doubt it. I believe what I feel”. This is a sentence that probably could describe Lyla’s feeling that time.

Lyla said that, it feels like, she just wake up and she has to play the music again, she hope the son could hear her music.

Now, his name is August Rush, he taking class in Juilliard, and preparing his concert in Central park in New York. Because of an ‘accident’ in a night, Evan is away from the Wizard, he met some good people that sent him to Juilliard.

August said, “I need people hear my Rhapsody lots and lots”. When The Juilliard offering him to have his concert. Alas, when August Rush is practising, the Wizard came and forced him to go with the Wizard again. And he went off.

Gemericik uang receh mengagetkan August yang sedang memejamkan mata. Guess what? Its Louis! August dan Louis pun bertukar gitar dan memainkan satu lagu bersama, its great loh!

Dan August pun bertanya, “What if bad things happened if u do that?”, sesaat setelah August bercerita bahwa dia memiliki konser pada malam tersebut, namun dia terancam harus ngikut Sang Wizard.

Hm, wanna know what Louis said? He said, “Anytime, something bad happens to you, it’s the one place you can escape to&just let it go”.

“You have got a little faith”, Louis continue,,

[wow! Aku terjungkal dari tempat dudukku waktu mendengar ini! Its another great words! Its just, its right guys! I just realize that, ‘anytime bad thing happened, and what we have to do is just escape. That’s what I’ve done all this time, so let us not to be afraid of doing something!. Let’s have a little faith!]

And August run off, August run for his dream, for his life, for his soul. He need to find his parents, its now or never!, coz he has been waiting and preparing for all this in 11 years, he wouldn’t miss the time, where he can play his rhapsody heard by many people, wishing that any off the audience is his parent, it’s the time to let them hear the melody of what his heart saying, it is how he say how he love his parent, it is how much he miss to be with the family, and it is now, it is how much he believe in his little great faith.

Coz this is important for August!

And for the heaven shake! On the way home, Louis that just finish his perfoming with his band is read this..

New York Philharmonic’s.

Legends and New Comer.

Concert in The Park.

Introducing composer: August Rush.

Conducting: August Rhapsody in C Major

Guest Cellit: Lyla Novacek. Pianist: Lionel Wigram.

“Let me out!Let me out!”, Louis screamed from the car to Marshall.

Guys,, It’s a great Rhapsody!
It’s a beautiful Melody,
it is touching smoothly in the beginning,
and its started make a solid sound,

Surprisingly continue with a beating sound,
full of the spirit,
Its like somebody’s heart is goes petter patter.

Its life that colourful in every single step everyday!

There is an anger, a will, a patience, and sadness.
Then its get confusing, it is frustrating, its unconditionally emotional.
And it’s a cooling down time, it’s a time to call, the ones he loved.

It is silence,,,,,,,,

It’s the dream, its all the miss, its all the hurt, its all the will.
Its all about the day and night when he think of his parent.
Its what he wants, his journey in life, its about how hard he passed his life as a kid.
Its how he tells his feeling.

“Come, mom, dad”.
That’s what he is trying to say by the song.

“Come, closer, and closer, I need you”.
“Come, mom, and dad, I miss you”.
“Come, I cannot waiting for the day we’ll be together”.
“Im parentless all this time, and this is just that easy”.

“Tiil when should I wait for you?
If I don’t find you now?
Then when will?”.

“I’ve been waiting for all this time. God, please answer my pray!”.

Its August Rush Story that telling me, the power of one wish.

Thank You, August. Thank You Lyla. Thank You Louis.
