One of my perennial favourites.

Henry is a high flying lawyer, living the life with a beautiful wife and their young daughter in the swanky part of town, until a chance encounter in a convenience store which is being held up, sees him get shot in the head.

In an instant his, and especially his family's life is turned upside down, as Henry is returned to an almost child like state, as his former self is all but destroyed... no longer able to perform for his firm, and pay the bills in the process, what with his family being placed now in the position of carers for him, and to assist in rehabilitation, in so far as they can.

As the story unfolds, truths about the relationships within the family are revealed, and it turns out the family's life, beneath the surface, was not quite the bed of roses they presented to the world, and that Henry himself, was not exactly a nice guy.

Basically, Henry has to learn to be the new person he has now become, at the expense of the person he once was, and his wife and daughter learn to adjust, what with the impact this has on them.

It's a fantastic character study, which allows Harrison Ford to get some of his best acting done alongside the ever solid Annette Bening.

Although a very sensitive portrayal of the frustrations that people in such situations as his, perhaps due to stroke, or returning injured from war and the like must surely recognise and sympathise with, it is not without the occasional comedic moments that arise from such situations, as well as being a very warm and poignant family film...

(Movie about family, as opposed to one to sit down with the kids and watch, if you get my drift)

...And a long with Witness, one of Harrison Ford's best films outside franchise movies.
