Henry Poole is Here: I Really, Want This to Be a Good Movie

Not only does this have an interesting premise ...
HENRY POOLE is HERE is a comedic drama about a disillusioned man who goes hiding in placid suburbia only to discover he cannot escape the forces of hope. Returning to the middleclass neighborhood where he grew up, Henry chooses to live in indulgent isolation. Real life, however, refuses to cooperate with his plans. Nosy neighbors interrupt him with curious visits and prying questions. Then the situation escalates as a stain on Henry's stucco wall is seen to have miraculous powers. His last-ditch hideout becomes a shrine; his backyard turns into an arena for passionate debate about faith and destiny. Seeking anonymous oblivion, cynical Henry Poole instead finds himself right at the center of the human comedy. ...
... but it also has Luke Wilson who I always find endearing. Plus I love the song that they use in the trailer.

Much thanks to Corby for sending me the link to this trailer. You're right ... it is well worth blogging about.

Mark Pellington’s latest film Henry Poole Is Here starring Luke Wilson is a movie I've been wanting to check out since last winter. It’s about a guy who abandons his fiancĂ©e and family business to spend what he believes are his remaining days alone. Here’s a cool new poster I found for the film that alludes to a current poster for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. You can find it here:
