Why We Love It

Bradley Whitford stars as Mitch Albom (Tuesdays with Morrie) in this adaptation of the bestselling author's memoir about his time spent penning his rabbi's eulogy. Acclaimed actor Laurence Fishburne proves his versatility in his role of a reformed criminal-turned-preacher who gets a second chance in life. Although the film spans many months, there's a distinct faith-based theme, making it perfect for the holidays.

Description

Mitch Albom has a pretty great life. He is happily married, has a flourishing career as a sportswriter, newspaper columnist, screenwriter, and broadcaster. But when two men come into his life, he realizes that something's missing. The two men are Rabbi Albert Lewis, who presides over a thriving synagogue in a comfortable New Jersey suburb, and pastor Henry Covington, a recovering drug addict who preaches to the poor and homeless in a crumbling Detroit inner-city church. Albom comes to realize that both men take profound comfort in believing that there's a divine spark in all of us, and that one person can make a big difference as long as they have a little faith.
