Seven Pounds

Released 2008 Rating 12A
Director Gabriele Muccino Writer/s Grant Nieporte
Starring Will Smith, Rosario Dawson, Woody Harrelson
Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A young engineer causes the deaths of seven people including his fiancee due to texting while driving. He is traumatised by guilt and so sets out to change the lives of seven strangers by making life changing sacrifices.
Content An ongoing drama with much talking, and time spent with people in hospital. One car crash, one sexual event tastefully obscured by rain on the window.
A View Yet another proof that it is just not enough to have beautiful people in a movie. It needs more, starting off with a decent script, following some basic dramatic principles. After about 40 minutes the writing was on the wall. What a disappointment.
