Format: DVD
After the death of his wife, Burke Ryan writes a book about dealing with grief, which goes on to be a huge best-seller across America. He begins to run self-help seminars aimed at helping people deal with their grief, and soon finds himself in Seattle holding a workshop, and also trying to broken a major media deal for his products. He by chance bumps into florist Eloise Chandler when she's arranging flowers at the hotel where the workshops are being held. The two slowly begin to make friends, and eventually go out to dinner. Eloise, however, realises something is amiss with Burke, that he hasn't dealt with his own grief over his wife despite helping hundreds of other people deal with theirs. Can she make Burke realise he needs to let go of his own demons before he can begin to live and love again?

It's actually nice to see a movie which isn't set in New York or LA or one of those over-used parts of America. The setting of Seattle is good, it is quite picturesque throughout the movie, although the rain somewhat puts me off a bit! The movie makes full use of the city, and its nice to see. I don't remember any specific songs from the soundtrack but I do remember that it was nice as I was watching it. The songs complemented the feel of the movie well, and didn't take over the scenes and dialogue which was nice. Yes, the film was a bit predictable because I guessed the ending, but I really enjoyed the journey it took to get there. It was emotional, especially some of the group therapy scenes but they were sensitively handled and I thought the director did a great job with these.

The cast are also very good in the movie. Eckhart is Burke Ryan, the man with 2 different persona's, and I feel he pulls that off well.

Easy to watch movie, dealt with grief issue in a relatively constructive way. Querky in parts which made me smile.

We both enjoyed the write-up for this film, and the advert did the film justice. A very warming tale, with a heart warming ending. Just the sort of film for a cold winter's evening. Very enjoyable.

this dvd is okay. The more times I watch it, the more I like it. It will never be one of my favorite films, but its one to watch every few years.
