The Mark Pellington's drama comedy about the unexpected wonders of the everyday has been released in theaters starting on August 15.
All what Henry Poole wants is simply to be alone and disappear. However, it seems that it is something extremely hard to do. Upon knowing that he is terminally ill, he leaves his fiancee, abandons his job and moves to a suburb to enjoy the last days of his life the way he desires, drowning himself with vodka and stuffing his stomach with junk food. Yet, settling in his new home doesn't mean that he gets the peace he dreams of. His nosy neighbor, Esperanza, believes that a mysterious stain on Henry's stucco wall has something to do with miracle and the young divorcee next door, Dawn, starts to grow on him.
Funny, poignant and uplifting, "Henry Poole Is Here" is a modern day story about miracle of everyday life. Having been screened for the first time at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, the Overture Films' flick hits limited theaters starting on Friday, August 15. Helmed by "U2 3D" director Mark Pellington, it features the likes of Luke Wilson, Radha Mitchell, George Lopez Adriana Barraza, and Cheryl Hines among others as the cast ensemble.
