The Book of Henry was a beautiful and thought provoking movie. It really makes you remember that while children may be so mature and smart, they are still children in the end. It had a beautiful storyline which showed a young boy who is so very smart come up with a plan to rescue his neighbour but sadly a tragic incident occurs before he can and it becomes upto the mother to deal with the situation. I warn you, this story will make you cry, but it will also make you laugh and smile and really appreciate this beautiful movie.

This drama/crime film is about a single mother who works full-time and is raising a very odd yet incredible son named Henry. After learning a dark secret about the neighbours, she is shocked to learn that Henry already has a plan. The movie stars Naomi Watts, Sarah Silverman, Dean Norris, Lee Pace, and many more in this very eventful film. Although not everything was perfectly executed and there were some awkward moments between transitions and storyline changes, it is without a doubt entertaining and contains many important messages. I would rate this movie 3/5 stars and recommend it to those who like dramatic and versatile films. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

After Henry died the whole story became so implausible we didn’t finish it. Great acting, especially from this boys.

Special features interesting. A Rub Goldberg expert was hired for the set in the neat tree house. Movie a bit slow at times and far fetched after Henry died. Few "F" bombs. Nice tattoo on Sarah Silverman. Lots of surprises.

I thought this movie was something a little different than the norm. I found it to be interesting and entertaining. It was relatively clean, which is seldom seen today. Will I watch it again? You betcha!

After reading some of the bad comments we questioned weather or not to check this movie out. Lucky for us we paid more attention to the good comments because we really enjoyed. A warning have some Kleenex ready some emotional scenes.
