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

Freddie - wrote on 12/30/2009

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 …
