Henry Poole is Here

| | Comments (1)

Henry Poole is Here, starring Luke Wilson, George Lopez, and Adrian Barraza, is about a young man (Luke Wilson) who abandons friends and work to spend what he believes are his remaining days alone. The discovery of a "miracle" by a nosy neighbor ruptures his solitude and restores his faith in life.

The movie has the support of The Catholic Association, Knights of Columbus, National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry, National Catholic Young Adult Ministry Association, Catholic Campus Ministry Association, Theology on Tap, National Catholic Student Coalition, and Life Teen. The movie opens on August 15th, which is the Feast of the Assumption.


here is the review i gave at moviefone:
you may laugh; you may cry. you may be frustrated or delighted, but one thing you'll never be is bored. this delightful cast of characters delivers poignant performances with surprising clarity. wilson's disillusioned henry is the disheartened cynic in us all. it takes the "wacky neighbor" to remind him that life, while far from perfect, is what we make it. in all honesty, i expected something akin to a sunday serman, but comedic timing is so dead-on, that what we got was more like a nudge towards hopefulness.
