"Academy Award nominee Will Smith reunites with the directors and producers of The Pursuit of Happyness for the emotional drama Seven Pounds. In the film, Smith plays Ben Thomas, an IRS agent with a fateful secret who embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by forever changing the lives of seven strangers."- This is the synopsis of the compelling movie Seven Pounds which was captivating from beginning to end. While I can't go into detail about the plot since I don't want to risk giving anything away (I hate when people do that to me) I will say that I was impressed with the entire ensemble. Will Smith gave an excellent performance of a man so consumed with his mistakes that it affects every decision he makes. Kudos to Rosario Dawson as well, who plays a young woman suffering from congenital heart failure yet still manages to remain spunky instead of becoming a victim. In my opinion this is Rosario's most memorable performance to date.

Overbrook Productions have once again released another hit and whether or not the box office sales shoot to blockbuster status, both the storyline and the acting are definitely worth taking a trip to your local theatre.
