Tax Prof Movie Recommendation: Henry Poole Is Here

It is rare that our high schoolers will consent to being seen with their parents on a Saturday night.  For a variety of reasons, that turned out to be the case last Saturday, and we saw the new movie Henry Poole Is Here.  It's a great movie -- Roger Ebert hits the nail on the head:

Henry Poole Is Here achieves something that is uncommonly difficult. It is a spiritual movie with the power to emotionally touch believers, agnostics and atheists -- in that descending order, I suspect. It doesn't say that religious beliefs are real. It simply says that belief is real. And it's a warm-hearted love story.

Professor Caron, I saw Henry Poole the other night and couldn't agree with you more. Perhaps - just perhaps - the human mind isn't capable of knowing all there is to know after all.

By the way, I think I saw the image of the Virgin Mary in one of your tax shelter posts.

P-Law, I was there with you and the family for the movie; the pizza was bad, W. was awe-inspiring, and the movie was good, but the movie's soundtrack was amazing!

I am sad to admit that there have been no miraculous water stains or Virgin Mary sightings in my life up to this point... Maybe soon.
