Plot Outline:

Henry Poole leaves his life behind to spend what he thinks are his last days alone. That is until a nosey neighbor sees a "face" in his stucco on the side of his house and believes it is a miracle. His yard becomes a circus for everyone who wants to see the miracle face. Henry is confronted with a true test of faith and hope. -- Josh C

This seems like a really unusual film for Luke Wilson to be in. Yet he is. Along with pretty good performances by Radha Mitchell and Oscar-nominated Adriana Barraza, we get an unusual glimpse into the life of an unfulfilled man. The only thing predictable about it is that we know he's going to be fulfilled by the end, but we just don't know how. Worthwhile film.

An Okay Movie that Tries too Hard

It was strange to see Luke Wilson in this religious-indie- dark comedy-drama. It was strange to see George Lopez play a priest...
This movie tries to be powerful but ends up as simply being pushy. Poole moves to his old neighborhood to live out the last days of his life, but his new home basically becomes a place of worship for the community when a neighbor reveals that the face of Jesus is in a water stain on the side of the house. This movie is just very predictable from beginning to end. People come to the house to touch the face, and suddenly the blind can see, the mute can talk, the crippled can walk, etc, etc. The only one left who needs healing is ...take one guess....Henry Poole! But guess what....Henry Poole doesn't believe! But guess what we know will happen....somehow he will ...
