I love movies with a message and this movie had a great one!!!! I loved the progression of the characters and how they all have problems but getting involved with the house project and George they just all seem to find a way to make things better for themselves and those around them. They are helping each other in ways that until the end they don't even realize. The ending was a wonderful surprise... read more

An average movie

Looking back at this movie, I’m really surprised by the ratings here on Listal and even more from Imdb. I mean, at 7.4, it means that it is a really good movie and something you should definitely watch. Honestly, I have no idea what it got such good ratings. I mean, it is pretty obscure and, above all, it was not bad, I’ll give you that, but it wasn’t that really that great either. Basically... read more

"A man with terminal cancer decides to spend his last few months of life building a house while connecting with his teenage son. He is in the last stages of cancer treatment and forgoes more aggressive treatment and instead uses his final days to try and establish some sort of meaningful relationship with his son, with whom communicating on any level has been tuff in the last few years."

I mean, it is pretty obscure and, above all, it was not bad, I’ll give you that, but it wasn’t that really that great either. Basically, it is a decent drama dealing with terminal illness, there was an interesting cast (Kevin Kline, Kristin Scott Thomas, Hayden Christensen, Jena Malone, Mary Steenburgen, Ian Somerhalder, Scott Bakula) but the whole thing was fairly predictable and it follows the rules of the genre without being really challenging. Sure, it is emotional but any movie with a character dying with cancer can get to t” read more

"A wonderful movie about a man that decides to use his last few months building a house after he finds out he has terminal cancer on the same day that he gets fired after 20 years on the job. Kevin Kline does a very nice job playing the lead character who tries to use this time to connect with his 16/17 year old son. Hayden Christensen plays the son and is portrayed as your average drug abusing, parent hating, heavy metal loving teenager with multiple piercings to his ears and face as well as he"

What I Started My 2013 With ❋ (15 movies items)

" Starring: Hayden Christensen, Kevin Kline and Kristin Scott Thomas "If you were a house, this is where you would want to be built. On rock, facing the sea, listening."Will I see the sequel? (if existed) Well, his father died at the end, so there's no point in making a sequel of course .. But I loved the movie, a lot!"

"Watched 12/27/11 I was expecting an average "life crisis" drama, and that's pretty much what I got. However, the memorable quotes and believable performances from the actors somehow made me care, and this movie is all the better for having these elements."
