Haunted by a secret, Ben Thomas looks for redemption by radically transforming the lives of seven people he doesn't know. Once his plan is set, nothing will be able to stop him. At least that's what he thinks. But Ben hadn't planned on falling in love with one of these people and she's the one who will end up transforming him. Written by
The film enabled Will Smith to tackle a subject which has always fascinated him from a different perspective: how do men overcome their traumas? How do they continue to live when everything is going wrong? See more »
Because eyes are not connected to the blood stream, eye donors do not need to be matched as closely as other organ donors. Because of this, it is doubtful that Ezra would be waiting for eyes. Also, in general eye donation does not cure blindness. Eye donors give only corneas, whole eye transplantation is not common yet. People who are born blind or have blindness due to a problem with the inner eyes (which causes most blindness) cannot be cured by cornea donations. Cornea donation is sort of like replacing a windshield. It's a simple and non-dramatic process. See more »
This film blew me away. The acting was superb, the story was heart wrenching and I truly believed in the characters. Some of you may say that this film is just another in a list of movies such as Pay It Forward.
This is a fallacy. This film here grabbed me from the start and will stay with me for weeks. It's a very powerful film and Will Smith and the rest of the cast deserve our applause and respect for playing their roles so well. Credit to the scriptwriters and director for also allowing this film to exist, it was amazing.
A definite must see film and one worthy of nomination for awards.
