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.

  • 4 stars "I liked the twists. I dislike it when you figure things out near the beginning. So I liked that it took me a bit of time to figure it all intertwined. It was actually a tear jerker for me, especially being a father of a little girl. I rather enjoyed it and liked that the parters weren't conniving in a bad way, it was actually in a way that benefitted everyone involved which was nice to see."
  • 5 stars "Well written. Great casting. Plot drew you in and unlike most movies it had an ending that tied together all the characters and their stories."
  • 5 stars "A thought provoking story, that touches on the absolute dispair of the grief journey. Well worth the time!"
