Seven Pounds (2008)


Drama |

Seven Pounds is a American drama film, directed by Gabriele Muccino, in which Will Smith stars as a man who sets out to change the lives of seven people. Rosario Dawson, Woody Harrelson, and Barry Pepper also star. The film was released in theaters in the United States and Canada on December 19, 2008, by Columbia Pictures. Despite receiving negative reviews, it was a box-office success, grossing US $168,168,201 worldwide.

In Los Angeles, Ben Thomas cruelly berates a sales representative, Ezra Turner, over the phone. Ezra, who is blind, maintains his composure and politely ends the call. At an IRS office after hours, Ben researches a woman named Emily Posa and finds her at a hospital, being treated for a congenital heart defect. His brother calls, but Ben denies having taken something from his house.

At a care home for the elderly, Ben introduces himself as an IRS agent. He meets with administrator Stewart Goodman, who brags about cutting costs despite buying himself a new BMW. Having paid for an unsuccessful bone marrow transplant, Stewart asks for an extension from the IRS until he can receive a bonus. Ben asks a resident named Inez if Stewart is a “good man”, and she reveals that Stewart is punishing her by refusing to let her bathe.
