Very good screenplay. "Mr. Church" tells the story of a unique friendship that develops when a little girl and her dying mother retain the services of a talented cook - Henry Joseph Church. What begins as a six month arrangement instead spans fifteen years, and creates a family bond that lasts forever (copied from IMDb). Was blessed be invited to the Premier. Very well directed, Eddie is magnificent in his roll as Mr. Church (Oscar performance). One of the better movies you will see this year. Madison Wolfe who plays young Poppy is fantastic. Believe me you will see her in the future. Very talented actress. This film will make you cry. Lucy Fry plays the older Poppy and just kills it. You will see her in the future films as well. Make sure you see this film. It will uplift you.
