At the beginning of the movie, Hub and Garth are flying in their biplane. They fly past a police cruiser, in which the cop is sleeping. A view of the rearview mirror shows that the cop is already awake, but a second later we see him suddenly wake up. See more »
I am very critical about movies, especially the ones which will pass
before the eyes of my 9 & 7-yr old daughters, so I was extremely
surprised and impressed with Secondhand Lions. I was washed away by the
depth of this movie and challenged by what it presented. Tucked into
the mystery of the uncles' past (unraveling in the moonlight) is a
revelation of a life well-lived. What drives man to a life of adventure
and where does he go when his body can't keep up? What, when, where
determines how he passes the wisdom of the ages? Created in the image
of God, we are challenged to be fully alive while we have the strength.
"Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things that
man needs to believe in the most" and I won't spoil the movie for you
by giving you the carrot. I will tell you that there is a sincere love
for life in this story that is utterly compelling. Go read "Waking the
Dead" and "If you want to walk on water, you have to get out of the
boat", watch "Secondhand Lions" with your most courageous friends and
the loved ones you wish would be so fearless, and then meet me for
coffee in Marseille. Bon courage à vivre!
