Plot Summary
With little time left due to a terminal disease, Henry Poole (Luke Wilson) buys a cookie-cutter house in a Los Angeles suburb and waits peacefully to die. However, he starts hearing a voice from next door that seems to be mimicking him perfectly. Upon investigating, Henry discovers that it's his neighbor's mute daughter with a tape recorder. Meanwhile, his other neighbor, Esperanza (Adriana Barraza), believes a stain on Henry's patio is the face of Jesus and begins showing it off to people.

  • Handsomely photographed by Eric Schmidt and nicely underplayed by the actors, the film relies too much on its jukebox soundtrack to convey mood. show more

  • The biggest hole in this picture is not so much whether an audience will buy its miracles but whether an audience will care about Henry Poole. Wilson hits the same notes in virtually every scene without any change to his physical rhythms or moods. show more

  • Achieves something that is uncommonly difficult. It is a spiritual movie with the power to emotionally touch believers, agnostics and atheists -- in that descending order, I suspect. show more

    This movie was so great! So touching! Luke Wilson did a great job & was so convincing that I forgot he was acting! Would recommend this to everyone I know! Must see!!!

    I absolutely loved it...I went with 7 friends and we all had good comments. I would recommend it to10 yrs and older. It had a good message and it was touching. :]

    This is a GREAT movie! I did not know anything about it when we went, just that I liked Luke Wilson and was so pleasantly surprised. My kids loved it too!
