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.

If you missed this film the first time around, I encourage you to check out the newly released family version. I absolutely loved this movie! It was such a great story about a real life guy who was struggling with his faith and accepting it. This is something that I’ve been struggling with myself for the past couple of years. It was such an encouragement to see this played out. And it’s really cool that I’ve found a site, Right now it looks like they are giving away 10 copies of the movie for free. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, or even if you have, you could always give it to a friend, but it’s definitely worth checking out! PERFECT film for a FAMILY movie night!
