Henry Poole Is Here

Henry Poole Is Here
Henry Poole Is Here


Henry Poole has his heart set on buying a house that isn't for sale, not at any price. So he settles for one that is for sale in the same neighborhood. He insists that nothing be done to it as hey he won't be there for long anyway but when a well meaning realtor tries to spruce it up for his move in, the work brings out a water stain in the shape of Jesus on an exterior wall. At least that's how his neighbor sees it.

Henry is not a believer, would rather not have the believers hanging out praying to his wall, in fact he'll tell them what crackpots they once if they push him too far.

You would think that this sort of movie would likely offend either true believers or true non-believers, in fact I doubt it is offensive to either. If you look at the way the two sides deal with each other in the movie, they're respectful (even as they tell each other how wrong they are). It's not a preachy movie even though religion is a central theme. 4/5 stars
