Heartwarming Family Movie
I have been told by many people this was a great movie and one I needed to watch. Well finally I watched it today and it didn’t disappoint me. It has so many great elements to it. I laughed in some parts and cried my eyes out in others. I loved the line “…died with his (or her) boots on.” It’s a great statement about living your life to the fullest and believing in the things that really matter like love and honor. The actors were fabulous. I think young Haley Joel Osment has a lot to offer films and I hope we see much more of him in the future. Michael Caine never disappoints me and I love his Texas accent in the film. Overall, this is truly one movie fit for all ages. A true heartwarming film with a great message for anyone who will hear it.
A gentle,almost Fordian,whimsy with revisionist undertones……..
“Second hand lions” sets the received gender wisdom of the last twenty years – gently – on its head.After two decades of movies dominated by strong,brave,loyal,self-reliant and confident women,it dares to show men who have those virtues – once almost their sole prerogative in Hollywood – and a woman who is weak,feckless,vain and stupid.It is set on some barren part of North Texas in 1962 – the date is on a letter opened by young master Osment – but it might as well be 1932.Dusty roads,rusting wire,dilapidated buildings dominate the scenery;you might almost expect to see Bonnie and Clyde bucketing along in the distance hotly pursued by the Law. Two brothers,Mr Michael Caine and Mr Robert Duval own a farm in this benighted part of the land but don’t appear to do much farming,spending much of their time sitting on the front porch grumbling at one another with shotguns across their knees.Into this slightly bizarre household comes young master Haley Joe Osment,a boy on the cusp of adolescence who is unceremoniously dumped on them by his mother as she goes in pursuit of her latest beau. Regaled by Mr Caine with tales of the brothers’ derring-do thirty years earlier,master Osment might well feel that reports of their adventures had been exaggerated except that he witnesses Mr Duval take on four knife-wielding thugs single-handedly in a bar. Deciding a lion’s head might look good mounted in their den,the brothers order a lion(from Sears Roebuck second hand lions dept?)but when it arrives,old and grizzled as themselves,they are unable to shoot it and let it live in their cornfield,happy in it’s own little piece of jungle. Ordered by his mother to search for the fortune she is sure the old men made from robbery in their youth,the boy stumbles upon bags of money hidden in a barn……………… This rites of passage tale feels like a treatment of “To kill a mocking bird” as it might have been envisioned by a late era John Ford with perhaps James Stewart and John Wayne in mind.Not a perhaps rather goody-two-shoes Atticus Finch,but two tough,real men,flawed maybe,but recognisably flesh and blood beings.”Tell me how to be a man” implores young Osment,a Fordian sentiment if ever I heard one. Mr Caine,far too often acting with one eye on his bank balance,is superb with an accent spot on for a man who has travelled the world before ending up in Texas.Mr Duval totally believable as the old but bold action man of the pair. “Second hand lions”,then,is a thoroughly enchanting movie for anybody who has ever been small in a big, confusing world.Has ever listened to fantastic stories and wondered if they could possibly be true before realising that it doesn’t actually matter,its the telling that counts.
