SEVEN POUNDS

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

GEM, Mon­day, 8.30pm, M ( 2008)

Di­rec­tor Gabriele Muc­cino and Will Smith ( left) again join forces af­ter The Pur­suit of Hap­py­ness with a mov­ing tale of a man try­ing to make amends for past wrongs. Smith plays Tim Thomas, who causes a car ac­ci­dent that kills his fi­ancée and six other peo­ple. Try­ing to make amends, he adopts the iden­tity of his brother to help seven strangers ( in­clud­ing Woody Har­rel­son, Rosario Daw­son and Judyann Elder) by do­nat­ing sev­eral or­gans. Ini­tially con­fus­ing, the emo­tional end­ing nicely ties up any loose ends to pro­duce a well- rounded, emo­tional tear­jerker. Bring the tis­sues.
