the accountant has a new website
31 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved the movie.....relevant message presented in a quirky way.....not used this style of acting, but it was refreshing. The context of the plot....the rural south, in which I happen to live is where many of us struggle not only to make a living but to preserve a heritage for our kids. It seems that this philosophy of life is being replaced by McDonalds and Wal*Mart. Not that these entities are bad it's just that we're not only losing touch with a heritage but, we're running out of energy to keep history alive.

The dialogue makes a very clear point that the farmer (all of us, regardless of vocation) needs to be smarter and savvy with how we spend our money and time. I do know that you can now buy the accountant online @ www.theaccountantmovie.com. I plan to pass it on to my friends because it made me think.
