Seven Pounds

The gal and I took in a movie this New Years Eve. Seven Pounds is a story of an IRS agent looking for redemption by impacting the lives of seven strangers. Utilizing his powers as an employee of the IRS, Ben Thomas (wonderfully portrayed by Will Smith) looks into the lives of others to determine if they are worthy of his kindness.

Without giving too much away, Thomas is not everything he appears to be. As the film progresses, we learn bits and pieces about his life and what led him on his journey to literally give himself to others.

Overall we enjoyed this movie very much, with the conclusion resulting in a lot of sniffles throughout the theater.
