seven pounds ...review
A pound of flesh was what Shylock wanted but here it is all about 7 pounds atoning a guilt or to put it differently to calm a sadness of the soul .
Will Smith as the protaganist has done remarkably well
there is a kindness that softens his feutures and a genial faraway look in his eyes that see beyond the horizon .
Ben Thomas an Internal Revenue Service agent has a past that knaws him and happens to meet individuals to whom his heart goes out and the descison to change thier lives remarkably is taken by him
his protectiveness to Emily who has an impending death from heart failure ,turns to love and solace, but time is short and memories are too painful to forget and he does what he plans to do
sorry for this very cryptical summary but to give more would be to destroy the essence of the film
see it with patience till the end you will not regret it I assure you .....
