DVD Second Hand LionsUtterly Brilliant, Subtle Detail, Heartwarming, July 4, 2008

Haley Joel Osment, Robert Duvall, Michael Caine

I have watched this DVD several times, and each time I find new details that enthrall.

This is a truly heartwarming movie that I used to push back against the crushing weight of reality, a reality I do not control.

The two super-actors are at their best, but the young man who stars as the son of the gad-about lady is the real star. His smile, his behavior, are Oscar material.

Don’t miss the dogs, the pig, and the lion. This is a “top ten” movie.
