Life As A House

 I watched this movie again last night, and it had been years since I watched it.  It is one of my favourite movies ever. It is so powerful and has such a stunning cast – Kevin Kline, Hayden Christensen, Kristin Scott Thomas, Mary Steenburgen.  And this time I was surprised to see Ian Somerhalder is in it too…the last time I watched the movie, he hadn’t starred on Lost or The Vampire Diaries yet.  The beauty of this film is the craziness of all its characters, the flawed, real rawness of their personalities.  The way everyone grows, even the people who you think are beyond redemption, is what makes it so beautiful.  Kevin Kline is just plain brilliant, as always.  He has such a gift, and plays the flawed man looking for redemption so well.  Hayden Christensen did this movie before the Star Wars trilogy, and is also brilliant in the role.  He can really act, and alongside Kevin Kline and Kristin Scott Thomas to boot.  Anyhow, if you haven’t seen it, watch it, and if you have, watch it again…with a box of Kleenex at the ready
