Excellent, Inspiring Movie
14 July 2012 | by karensbiggestfanSee all my reviews

Regarding Henry is one of my favorite movies. My dad suggested I watch it because he also loves it. I caught on one of the movie channels, then ended up going out and buying the DVD because I thought it was so great. Henry is a hard working lawyer at the top of his career. His whole life is about work and social status. Then, something happens that changes everything and he must decide who he wants to be after all. The movie has a very simple, but meaningful message about what's really important in life. It's presented in a dramatic way with comical moments thrown in, just as life really plays out. Harrison Ford and Annette Bening are excellent as usual, but the real standouts for me were Bill Nunn and Mikki Allen. Bill Nun plays Bradley, an amazingly fun and enjoyable physical therapist. Mikki Allen plays the daughter, Rachel, in a performance way beyond her years that Was just unbelievable. I highly recommend this if you're looking to be inspired or just need a pick-me-up when you're down.
