Henry Poole Is Here

When Henry Poole (Luke Wilson) buys a house in the suburbs, all he is looking for is some peace and quiet. Unfortunately, his nosey new neighbors just won't leave him alone. And things get worse when one of them (Adriana Barraza) becomes convinced a stain on Henry's stucco is really a holy manifestation. Soon there are pilgrims all over his backyard.

Following his death, an amusement park employee feels his life had little value until he has the chance to converse with a group of individuals he unknowingly touched during his time on earth in Five People You Meet in Heaven.
