Howard Inlet (Will Smith) is a brilliant, creative advertising executive in New York City with partners (Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Michael Peña) who are also his best friends. After the tragic death of his young daughter, he becomes a shattered version of his former self. He withdraws from the world, leaving his friends struggling to run the company. In an effort to cope with his overwhelming grief, he writes letters to Time, Love and Death.

Meanwhile, his friends are getting worried about the company and hire a private detective to follow Howard, who is visited by Time, Love and Death (Jacob Latimore, Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren). What the colleagues don't realize is that the burdens that each of them is coping with in their own lives will come into play, as Howard ultimately learns that even the deepest losses can lead to moments of beauty and meaning.

  • 5 stars "A fantastic movie! I think the critics got it wrong with this one. I guess they wanted Will Smith to act in the typecast way they have come to love the actor. He did step outside his comfort zone perhaps but I feel it made the character all the more believable. Highly recommend."
  • 5 stars "what a beautiful spiritual movies"
  • 5 stars "The most touching thing to me the portrayal of a father who's lost a baby daughter. The different way in which a man tries to deal with the tragic emotions a loss such as this incurs is played out in Will Smith's expressions so convincingly. The mothers were much more easily able to talk about their losses, but the dad just couldn't find the way on his own. A broken man begins to be repaired. Please see this movie at least twice. There is a lot being said and it takes more than one viewing to get it all. Love it"
