Seven Pounds

seven poundsSeven Pounds, which came out December 19th in theaters, was found by critics to be less than spectacular.  Rotten Tomatoes reported that out of 130 critics only 28% gave the Gabrielle Muccino film positive reviews.  However, after viewing I was far less fault-finding.  Will Smith was careful and much more self-observing in his character than in previous films.  Woody Harrelson and Rosario Dawson were equally aware of their personage and supported the film responsively.  

Seven Pounds

The film was an absolutely devastating love story.  Perhaps even more so than that, it was a tragic tale of internal struggle and the freedom which comes from repaying ones debts.  If you have not seen it yet, I urge you to do so.  It will break and mend your heart while compelling you to question one of the most controversial subjects of our time.
