Seven Pounds

TV & Satellite Week - - Films -

Will Smith plays an enig­matic tax in­ves­ti­ga­tor in this beau­ti­fully crafted, lux­u­ri­ous weepie. A mes­mer­i­cally in­tense air of mys­tery sur­rounds his char­ac­ter, who is trou­bled by a ter­ri­ble secret as he sets off on a jour­ney of redemp­tion that will change the lives of seven strangers for ever. It is a weird but strangely haunt­ing movie and Smith, hardly best known for his emo­tional dra­mas, plays it with great charm and con­vic­tion, and he gets en­chant­ing sup­port from Rosario Daw­son as a woman with a fail­ing heart. 2007, 12, 125MIN

WAS IT FATE THAT BROUGHT WILL AND ROSARIO TO­GETHER?
