"Everything happens for a reason" - on his 50th birthday, Lenny Vincent is fired from his job as a sports writer for a daily newspaper, his wife of 19 years leaves him for a much younger man and he and his best friend Dave are caught in a gang heist at a restaurant. He ends up being hi-jacked by the gang and dumped in a rural village. Here he befriends the local chief and embarks on the adventure of a lifetime; helping to reunite the chief's warring sons, fighting a money grabbing property company from turning the chief's land into a golf course, coaching the village soccer team and ultimately.. finding himself!Written by
Finding Lenny celebrates the best of our South African-ess with humour, warm and amusing characters and an uplifting tale about love, sport, family ties and the way our luck can change in an instant. Im not a sports lover - don't even know how a soccer game works actually- but I had a lump in my throat as the soccer game became about so much more than kicking a ball around. Its light and funny and we are damn proud that a bunch of South African's could make something so fabulous! I think that its an excellent debut for Barry Hilton - under good directorship, his timing is perfect and its not overdone. Fab to see Fish and Masinga along for the ride and well done to Yule for a truly charismatic performance. Savadier is perfect and the women who plays Lenny's morally compromised wife was spot-on. Just know the kind of house that Lenny lives in and felt his pains, his joys and his Joburg-ness!
