Retreating from life after a tragedy, a man questions the universe by writing to Love, Time, and Death. Receiving unexpected answers, he begins to see how these things interlock and how even loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty.
When a successful New York City advertising executive suffers a great tragedy, he retreats from life. While his concerned friends try desperately to reconnect with him, he seeks answers from the universe by writing letters to Love, Time, and Death. But it's not until his notes bring unexpected personal responses that he begins to understand how these constants interlock in a life fully lived, and how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty.Written by
The ad agency scenes were filmed at Wieden Kennedy, a real-life ad agency in New York City. See more »
It's unlikely the P.I. would be in the exact location to film Howard berating "Time." There would be no way for her to know when, where, or if he would stop, even if she knew the plan was to make Howard do so. See more »

Are you losing somebody?
Who are you losing?
Um, my daughter.
Just make sure you notice the collateral beauty.

The opening logos of Warner Brothers Pictures, New Line Cinema, Village Roadshow Pictures, Ratpac Entertainment, and Overbrook Entertainment are all in pure white, including the backgrounds, which then goes to a line of pure white domino type blocks ending with a clock shaped circle (also with pure white blocks on a white background) as the movies dialogue starts.

It doesn't get much love, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This kept reminding me of A Christmas Carol, with the central figure visited by three ghosts, our central figure, namely Will Smith, is visited by three beings, all sent, to turn his life around.
I've not found a great deal of love for this film, and that surprises me, I very much enjoyed it. It had me moved to tears. The ending in particular hit hard.
A great story, with some terrific performances, a terrific cast, including Helen Mirren and Kate Winslet. Despite the names, I must give full credit to Will Smith, the best performance I've seen from him to date, he had me choked up.
