Burke is a motivational speaker whose book about dealing with grief is a best seller. His wife died in a car accident three years ago. He's in Seattle to lead a week-long workshop on healing and to negotiate a major multi-media deal. But something's amiss: he's a closet drinker, he won't ride elevators, his moods swing, he's estranged from his wife's father, and he's very much alone. In a hotel hallway, he bumps into a woman arranging flowers, tries to chat with her, and gets the brush-off. She's Eloise, a local florist who's just broken up with a boyfriend. He's persistent and they eventually go to dinner - it goes badly. What's blocking Burke? Can the physician heal himself. Written by

Burke probably wouldn't have been able to find "poppysmic" in a dictionary because it isn't typically recognized as a real word in most dictionaries or spell-checkers. The only writer in English known to have used the word was James Joyce, in a stage direction in Ulysses: "FLORRY WHISPERS TO HER. WHISPERING LOVEWORDS MURMUR, LIPLAPPING LOUDLY, POPPYSMIC PLOPSLOP."

This one was a little different than I thought. It had a decent story and I was pleasantly surprised. I found it a little slow at times; it had it's good and bad parts.It's a movie of healing for lost loved ones in your life and it walks you through the paces of grief.Jennifer Aniston is magical.it was more about grieving and getting over the death of a loved one then it was about love. Aaron Eckhart was the perfect match for Aniston in this movie there was this huge chemistry between them love it. Brandon Camp's directing was OK but the story could have been better though.Watch it together or alone there is no difference but watch it for sure!
