The Accidental Tourist

One of my favorite movies, "The Accidental Tourist" is the difficult
mid-life second chance for William Hurt's character, who is a hurting
man,  isolated and closed off from the world due to the enormous pain
and loss he has suffered.

An incredible cast (Kathleen Turner, Geena Davis, Bill Pullman,
Ed Begley Jr., David Ogden Stiers, Amy Wright) makes magic out of
this quirky yet believable story of redemption, fear, and love later in life.
It beautifully tells the story of all us damaged people struggling to make
sense and survive.

Based on the excellent book by Anne Tyler, and aptly directed by
Lawrence Kasdan, this is a tour-de-force of drama, humor, and
discovery of hope and courage.
