George Lopez, Luke Wilson, director Mark Pellington and their "Henry Poole is Here" co-stars talk to CineMovie.TV about their new film and divine intervention. "Henry Poole is Here" opens Friday, August 15.
Luke Wilson (“The Royal Tenenbaums”, “Old School”), Academy Award® nominee Adriana Barraza (“Babel”) and Radha Mitchell (“Finding Neverland”) star in a modern day fable about the unexpected wonders of the everyday from director Mark Pellington (“U2 3D”, “The Mothman Prophecies”. Henry Poole is Here tells the funny, poignant and uplifting story of a disillusioned man who attempts to hide from life in a rundown suburban tract home only to discover he cannot escape the forces of hope.
Henry’s self-imposed exile is shattered when his nosy neighbor Esperanza (Adriana Barraza) discovers a mysterious stain on Henry’s stucco wall that is seen to have miraculous powers. She begins leading pilgrimages to the “holy site” and invites church officials, including her pastor, Father Salizar (George Lopez), to inspect the apparition.Although Henry remains skeptical, he finds himself gradually drawn back towards life, especially after his silent friendship with Millie brings him closer to Dawn. As news of the apparition spreads throughout the neighborhood and his feelings for Dawn grow, Henry realizes his plan to live out his days in quiet desperation is going to be much harder than he ever imagined.
