This dramatic romance movie stars Will Smith, Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet, Edward Norton, and many more, giving the movie a very impressive cast. This movie is about a very successful advertising executive who has recently felt a great loss in his life, and begins to retreat until he decides to write to Love, Time, and Death. As he writes, he learns more about others and begins to realize that things aren’t as grim as they seem. Although this movie had a pretty serious storyline, things felt too loose at times and the actors all seemed to lack critical chemistry. What could have been a great movie was ruined by rushed scenes and a lack of care by the director. I would rate this movie 2/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Started this on the plane and didn't get to finish so had to borrow. A nice family movie showing family dynamics. I can see why people make this an annual watch.

One of my favourite films about family and relationships. I have to watch it every Christmas - with a glass of eggnog and a box of tissues.
