SEVEN POUNDS (2008) GEM, 8.40PM, M, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Di­rec­tor Gabriele Muc­cino and Will Smith (above), and much of the same crew, 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. ★★★★
