HENRY POOLE IS HERE (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Henry Poole Is Here—
unusual story, but likable—investigates the miraculous without preaching or trying to drive home a point which makes the movie not only palatable but leaves it in the comfortable to investigate zone. Main actors include Luke Wilson, Adrianna Barraza, and George Lopez. The film has human heart factor strongly interwoven throughout and becomes a small treasure that is worth a watch.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s different, but interesting. No highly electrical field here to amuse or entertain, but a quiet story with a quiet conclusion.
