John Pankow as Bryan Burke
This 2001 emotion-fest is about an architectural drafter/model maker who finds out he has cancer and is given a few months to live. He quits his job, decides to build the house he always wanted to build and reconnects with his troubled son, ex-wife, nosy neighbors, and anyone else who is willing to give him a hug. The story is predictable, the acting is mediocre, and the architecture is craftsman, but dammit, they got me. I did cry, but only a little bit, I swear.
George is about to find out he has ill. The rumors are true: zap-a-gap and accelerant do give you cancer.
