Tip#594: You Are Not Alone - Henry Poole Is Here
"You are not alone."
"Everything will be okay."
"This too will pass."
Henry Poole Is Here (2008)
The drama Henry Poole Is Here is about a dying man named Henry (Luke Wilson) who returns to his hometown and buys a house to await his end. His solitude is interrupted by his neighbor, Esperanza (Adriana Barraza), who insists she sees the face of Christ on the stucco wall of his house. Soon the whole neighborhood comes to see what they believe is a miracle. See: movie trailer
There are many comedic moments in what sounds like a dark story of depression. Henry slowly discovers that despite his desire to be left alone that he is surrounded by people who care about him and want to help cheer him up. Even the names of these caring people are meaningful like his neighbor "Dawn" and local supermarket cashier "Patience". Even the name Esperanza is Spanish for hope.
Movies can be a powerful source of inspiration when you feel depressed and hopeless. And if you remain open you will see that there is always someone near you that cares about you. Remember… "You are not alone."… "Everything will be okay."… "This too will pass."
