This review is from: Life as a House (New Line Platinum Series) (DVD)
This was a phenomenal movie, unfortunately overlooked by many. The entire cast gave excellent performances, especially Kevin Kline and Hayden Christensen. Unlike most movies with a character dying of an illness, House does not linger over it--keeping the fact a secret from most characters until the end. It made the relationship building more believable. Hayden Christensen floored me with his performance (having only seen him in Star Wars--not exactly a demanding role) as the rebellious, hurting, self-destructive teenager. He is definitely the best actor of his generation, no exaggeration. Get this movie now--you won't be disappointed!
