Today's pick is a comedy drama called Henry Poole Was Here.
Stars: Luke Wilson, Rahda Mitchell, Morgan Lily, Adriana Barraza, George Lopez
Henry Poole leaves his fiance and family business behind to live out what he believes are the remaining days of his life. After moving into his new house a noisy nieghbor makes a "miracle" discovery on his stucco. She think that his stucco water spot is the face of Jesus and when word spreads, Henry, who just wants to be left alone, gets his world turned upside down. He befriend a young girl and her mother, but still thinks his life is going to end. Will Henry Poole find a miracle even if he don't believe?
I love Luke Wilson, he is my favorite of the Wilson brothers, so when I seen a preview of this movie I thought I would give it a try. At first it is a little boring, but when his noisy neighbor finds the stucco Jesus, it gets interesting. I thought it was a delightful movie about a man who thinks he life is ending and has no hope. After befriending the young girl and her mother he would like to believe in hope, but fears he can't. He refuses to believe in miracles, because he thinks he has no hope and mircales don't exist. I can't really say more about it without giving away the ending. But I thought it was a good story of hope, love and miracles.
Rated PG and great for the entire family.
