I think John Cusack is one of the more underrated actors of our day, he's really pretty fabulous.
Martian Child is a really sweet and perfectly delightful film. If you saw the trailer you might have thought it looked strange, but in reality it's a very moving and hopeful little movie. It's also pretty family friendly which is a rarity today. I actually really loved this one, which tempers the difficulty of life with the power of transforming love. Really recommend it.
Grace is Gone doesn't uplift quite as much, but it's still a lovely little story of a father and his girls and how he copes with the worst possible news he could receive and the choices he makes in how to share that news with his daughters. I probably cried a river, but despite all of that, it's a very human story and a story that could be very real.
Ok, so run out and immediately rent those, but first tell me...what's your favorite John Cusack movie?
