#29 - Life as a House (2001)

This is one just struck a cord with me. I think Kevin Kline is a very underrated actor and he stars as a father who has to take care of his son while dealing with his own illness. Hayden Christensen plays his son, this was before he went to star in the Star Wars prequels.Christensen displays the acting that got him the role of Anakin Skywalker and he is good as the troubled son, acting like he never did in the Star Wars movies. Rounding out the impressive cast is Kristin Scott Thomas, Jena Malone, and Mary Steenburgen. This movie just made me feel all the emotion of a father trying to reach his son, I tend to be a sucker for dad and son movie and this one got me to shed some tears. The movie gives you hope despite all the death that surrounds it.
