A THOUSAND WORDS (Theatrical Release USA 2012)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

A Thousand Words addresses the importance of balance in life and using words wisely. It’s a unique message movie that does not beat its audience to death to get its message across. The gentle storyline has value and the audience can take home a thoughtfully presented idea while having been entertained. Portrayal is good partly due to the cooperative efforts of its cast that include Eddie Murphy, Cliff Curtis, Kerry Washington, and Clark Duke. Clark Duke initiates much of the comedy. It’s worth its watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Good, laid-back watch, with just a touch of comedy, addresses the value of spoken words to heal and make amends.
