This is one of those 'only in Hollywood' movies that make you feel good for having seen it, having been a part of the experience.
I remember discovering 'Interstate 60,' the likable James Marsden cameo-filled film about a young man's road to discovery and digging every inch of the journey. 'Footprints' gives me that same great feeling. In fact, there's a scene, similar really to one in 'Interstate 60,' invloving a close-up magician, reminding me that the magic of Hollywood is magic.
I'm glad that they are still making movies like 'Footprints,' and, even though I have nothing to do with filmmaking, I'm proud to be in the entertainment business, to be related, however distantly, to magic makers like Steven Peros.

Maybe this film should be viewed as a myth or possibly a fairy tale (as has been written by others), or, perhaps you might just open your heart to the music and watch where that takes you.
Is the plot thin? Are there unbelievable elements in the stroy? Yes and so what?
I've never caught myself caring all that much about the pretty boy characters JRM has played in the past but, in AUGUST RUSH, he's beautiful.
