August Rush is a 2007 drama film directed by Kirsten Sheridan and written by Paul Castro, Nick Castle, and James V. Hart, and produced by Richard Barton Lewis.
In 1995, Lyla Novacek (Keri Russell) is a cellist in an orchestra under strict rule of her father (William Sadler). Louis Connelly (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is the lead singer of "The Connelly Brothers". Lyla and Louis have a chance meeting during a party and sleep together while a man plays his harmonica down on the street. Lyla returns to her angered father and heads back to Chicago, finding that she is now pregnant with Louis's son. Louis continues waiting for Lyla in New York and eventually gives up. Months pass and Lyla starts 'showing'. After an argument with her father, Lyla runs out into the street and is struck by a car. Due to the accident trauma, she gives birth prematurely and her father secretly puts her son up for adoption, allowing her to believe that the baby died as a result of the accident.
