Movie Preview: Henry Poole Is Here


A few months ago I was thrilled to hear that Henry Poole Is Here got picked up by a studio at Sundance because it was hands-down one of my favorite movies there. Luke Wilson is totally engaging as Henry Poole, a curmudgeonly man who buys an ordinary house in Southern California. Soon his neighbor Esperanza (Adriana Barazza) notices a stain on the outside of Henry's house that she thinks is the face of Jesus. She starts telling everyone in town about "the miracle" at Henry's house, much to Henry's annoyance. He tries his best to get rid of the stain, but the more he angrily resists the "miracle" on his house, the more proof presents itself that the stain truly does have some kind of power.

It gets a little overwrought and message-y at times, but overall the movie is sweetly funny and ultimately touching. Henry Poole opens in theaters August 15. To check out the trailer,

Looking forward to seeing this. Luke Wilson has a subtle charm about him and should be perfect in this role.

I dunno. I like Luke, but the rest of it seems kinda...hokey? I'll probably still watch it though.

That looks pretty good. I'm always happy to watch Luke Wilson. You know, the non-annoying Wilson brother with a little bit of charm and talent.
