Directed by Mark Pellington (COLD CASE TV series), comedy HENRY POOLE IS HERE is a drama about a man in his mid 30's who is faced with the nightmare dilemma of discovering he only has weeks to live.
Deciding to retreat from life, Henry Poole (Luke Wilson) returns to his hometown quitting his job and leaving his fiancee and domineering mother behind. But quiet solitude seems the last thing on the cards as inquisitive neighbors increasingly disrupt his attempt to find harmony and solace.
Why? A strange stain appears on one of the walls of Henry's home. Interpreted by believers as a sign from God, they turn his home into more of a shrine than retreat, as word spreads about its healing powers...
