Sitting on 35 acres of Georgia land coveted by a shopping mall developer, 90+years-old Noah Dearborn is untainted by modern life. He's never heard of the Beatles, and his only interest is his woodworking, in which he excels. The girlfriend of one of the developers is a psychologist, and is asked to evaluate Noah for a possible move to have him declared incompetent. But she soon falls under his spell of a simple life and becomes his ally in his fight to keep his land. Written by

This was one of the better movies I've seen this year. "Noah" is especially needed at a time when we are being bombarded with violent, negative and depressing cinema from movies like "Fight Club", "American Beauty", and "A Simple Plan". What a positive, up-beat, feel-good movie. It was refreshing to see great movies are still being made, even though they unfortunately are not box-office hits and you usually have to turn over a few stones to find them. That's why I particularly like the IMDB forum. It makes the mining for great movies like "The Simple Life Of Noah Dearborn" that much easier.
