Life as a House

When middle-aged architect George Monroe (Kevin Kline) learns he's dying, he makes one last attempt to leave a lasting impression on his screwed-up world. George contacts his ex-wife (Kristin Scott Thomas) and asks that his troubled teenage son (Hayden Christensen) come visit for the summer. George plans to reconnect with his son and rebuild his crumbling seaside cottage all in one magical summer. Unfortunately, George's alienated, drug-addicted son is doing an equally good job of wasting his own life, and there are many family issues to work out before the nails start pounding. This humorous, dramatic and deeply touching film has got all the requisite elements to make it a sure-fire Oscar contender. 124 minutes
