About the Movie
Academy Award-winner Kevin Kline ("A Prairie Home Companion," "A Fish Called Wanda") stars as George Monroe, a divorcee who is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Hayden Christensen ("Jumper," "Star Wars" episodes I - III") was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance as Sam, George's contemptuous teenage son, who spends his time doing drugs, engaging in small-time prostitution and avoiding his dying father. In a last-chance effort to fulfill one of his life's dreams, George, an architect, begins rebuilding an old house. He enlists Sam's help in the hopes that the project will enable him to fix his troubled relationship with Sam, and with his ex-wife, whom he abandoned.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Sadly, Christensen is the only jolt of excitement in this turgid soap opera.
Fresh: A heart-warming, involving experience.
Rotten: For a movie that's all about embracing life wholeheartedly, Life as a House sure does a good job of keeping its actors in check.
Fresh: Like George's house, if not his life, it's built well and full of heart.
This movie is really good! Like the plot and everything! Great acting! Was wondering when it would be added on here! Recommended!
I haven't ever watched a film in my 59 years that touched me the way this movie has. The content was as close to my life as the movie was. The actors were perfectly matched for the characters they played. The scenery was magnificent, especially Catalina Island in the background ( I flew there regularly ) and especially the house where most was played out was the perfect scenery.
Whenever I need my huge ego deflated, I watch the movie.
I am so pleased that the iTunes Store finally had it! I requested it 2 years ago.
If you have a family with some dysfunction, then WATCH THIS MOVIE!
