Henry Poole Is Here (Family Edited Version)

2009  NR  99 minutes

Henry Poole is Here stars Luke Wilson as Henry Poole, a disillusioned man who attempts to hide from life only to discover he cannot escape the forces of hope.

Shattered by circumstances beyond his control, Henry Poole (Wilson) settles into suburban isolation, but his well-meaning busybody neighbor (Academy Award® Nominee Adriana Barraza of Babel), destroys his exile when she discovers a mysterious stain on Henry’s stucco wall that is seen to have miraculous powers.

With the help of the beautiful neighbor next door (Radha Mitchell of Finding Neverland ), and her daughter Millie (Morgan Lily), Henry finds himself gradually drawn back toward life as he realizes his plan to live out his days in quiet desperation is going to be much harder than he ever imagined.

Cheryl Hines and George Lopez (The George Lopez Show) also star in this modern day tale about the unexpected miracles we experience everyday if we only have faith.

I strongly encourage you to check out this new version of this film if you missed it the first time around. I absolutely loved this movie! It was such a great story about a real life guy who was struggling with his faith and accepting it. This is something that I've been struggling with myself for the past couple of years. It was such an encouragement to see this played out. And it's really cool that I've found a site, http://www.henrypoolebelieves.com. Right now it looks like they are giving away 10 copies of the movie for free. If you haven't seen the movie yet, or even if you have, you could always give it to a friend, but it's definitely worth checking out! PERFECT film for a FAMILY movie night!

it seemed sign oriented. i need to see a sign to believe denotes a serious lack of faith which is required by all of us as christians and nonchristians who want to receive Christ.
