Henry Poole is Here

Luke Wilson stars as the titular Henry, a disillusioned, terminally ill man who tries to go into hiding in a nondescript suburban neighborhood. Friendly, quirk-filled neighbors keep interrupting his isolation, which comes to a crashing halt when tamale-loving Esperanza (Adriana Barraza) discovers a stain on Henry's stucco that looks a heck of a lot like Jesus. Soon, a whole church's worth of worshippers (including priest George Lopez) show up in Henry's back yard, giving him a blindingly obvious lesson in faith. Filmmaker Mark Pellington (The Mothman Prophecies) lectures on topics like religion (good) and science (bad) with a Sunday school level of sophistication. 101 minutes PG.
