Well, with a free pass from my radio station and based on the recent ads I thought it would be light and entertaining. I must agree with the official Ebert & Roper reveiw - "incredibly low key." In fact, it felt like a short story that was stretched into a feature-length film. Sure it was a well-written story, but without any extra filler...just a lot of slow well-filmed empty spaces - presumably mimicing the emptiness in Henry's heart. Although I became engaged with the characters, there just wasn't enough movie to go around.
This movie is seriously wicked! I'm not a follower of the Christian doctrine, but I still liked it!!! Luke Wilson's performance is very touching, and so is everyone else's. It's a slow movie but worth the rental. I highly recommend it to everyone.
A good flick to watch!!! I was impressed compared to how I tjought the movie would turn out. Look for more of my reviews. E.B.A.
