MOVIE REVIEW: Secondhand Lions

Secondhand Lions: 5/5
Here's what had to say:
Secondhand Lions(2003) PG
In 1960s Texas, timid teen Walter (Haley Joel Osment) is forced to spend the summer with his rich and eccentric great-uncles (Michael Caine and Robert Duvall) on their farm, where, over time, he learns surprising tidbits about their mysterious and dangerous pasts. Emmanuelle Vaugier plays an Arabian sultan's daughter, with whom Duvall's character fell in love years ago. Kyra Sedgwick co-stars.
My thoughts:
My younger brother who is 26 & likes some crazy things actually recommended this movie. Now, I was a bit unsure because his idea of a good movie is usually a zombie movie. But, I figured we'd give this movie a try. And, we LOVED it!! It was such a sweet movie with such a powerful message. Two old men who were well past thier prime actually gave hope & truth to a young boy who only knew lie after lie. What a great message :) The movie actually made me cry a few times.
