Film Review of A Thousand Words


Film review of A Thousand Words.

A Thousand Words is a charming little tale of a business high-up named Jack McCall (Eddie Murphy) who is at the top of his games in the world of publishing.  While pursuing the right to publish the first book by a world-famous  “New-Age”  religious leader, Jack McCall is struck by “Bad Karma” after touching a Magic Tree at the leader’s complex.  This encounter results in Jack being connected to the tree, in that the life of the tree foretells his own potential demise. We are told that each word he speaks results in one leaf falling and when the last of the 1,000  remaining  leaves fall, the tree will die.  As events unfold Jack is forced to choose his words carefully, and in-turn reexamine his priorities.
