One of the best films I have ever seen - unmissable.,
This review is from: Pay It Forward [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
I borrowed this film from the video shop expecting to be neither amazed nor disappointed. I hadn't heard much about it but from reading the back i thought i'd give it a go.
I can honestly say that this film is one of the best I've seen (and I've seen a lot) and I would rate it in my top three. The story is well written and the three main characters are acted beautifully by Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and Haley Joel Osment. It is the story of Trevor Mckinney who comes up with idea of paying it forward for a social studies class. Instead of paying back a person who has done something for you, you pay it forward to three other people who do the same for three others, therefore the "movement" spreads. The ways in which this idea affects those around it is very moving, trust me, the tissues will be needed.
Buy this film, you will not regret it.
