Ben runs through the rain to the hospital. When he arrives inside his body is soaking wet, but his shirt is dry. When he walks out of the hospital, it still is pouring rain and his shirt becomes visibly soaked. When he arrives at his motel, he opens the door soaked, but his shirt is completely dry. See more »
Seven Pounds follows the story of Ben Thomas, an IRS agent on a mission to redeem himself from a haunting secret. We follow him on his mission to seek out seven strangers in desperate need of help. Ben's plans are complicated when he meets and falls in love with Emily (Rosario Dawson), a young woman with a terminal heart condition. Italian director Gabriele Muccino brilliantly pieces together a tragic modern day Shakespearian love story, weaving between the present day and glimpses into the dark past. Seven Pounds is not a kick back and zone out film, you have to work as an audience member to put all the pieces together. The more you allow your mind to work in this film, the more you will get out of it.
