If a piece of knotted string can unleash the wind, a drowned man can awaken, then a broken man can heal. Headlines: A deadly storm takes a house, leaves excellent view.

A very impressive cast of excellent actors with Kevin Spacey, Judi Dench, Julianne Moore, Cate Blanchett and Scott Glen. Need I say more?
