HOME LESS PLEASe HELP

Cardboard Boxer is about a friendless man - Willy (Thomas Haden Church) without a home trying to make it with what he can scrape up. One day, he finds a little girl's diary in the dumpster, which he reads each day, and sometimes imagines a reply to her. He also befriends a war hero named Pinky, who is also homeless. The other half of this movie is about these twenty-somethings rolling up to the homeless alley offering up money for the homeless people to fight each other for money. There's this one big dude who'll fight but the only other person who's up for the challenge is Willy. Willy wins, thus earning him the champion name "Cardboard Boxer!" This continues throughout the movie. The leader of the twenty-somethings is JJ (Rhys Wakefield from "The Purge"). Thomas and Rhys each play their parts well. I feel like Rhys is going to be in many movies one day. I watched this movie on Netflix.

I hope you get this letter

This is a bitter-sweet tear jerker about a homeless man named Willy (Thomas Haden Church) the title character. He is a loner and comes across a little girl's diary in a dumpster. She tells a sad story about her dead mother and living with an abusive uncle. She is alone and wants to die. Willy doesn't want to die alone and opens up. He befriends Pinky (Boyd Holbrook) a homeless vet in a wheel chair with a Purple Heart. The war has messed up his mind, and we never know fully why Willy is in his state, but we get clues. The title comes from the fact there are individuals who pay to film homeless people fight. Willy gets the nickname "Cardboard Boxer" to the dismay of Pope (Terrence Howard) a tough love cabbie who cares for the homeless on Fifth Street or "The Nickel" as they call it.

The film was well acted. Cameos by Marlo Thomas, Macy Gray, Johanna Braddy (Levenger Tapes).

Sad and heartwarming.

Guide: F-word. Near sex. No nudity

Right in the feels

I watched this movie with my 18 yer old daughter, she's on a Boyd Holbrook high at the moment after seeing Logan. There were parts of it that broke me. The despair, the hopelessness the isolation that must come with being homeless. The scene in the store when the little girl says she can smell something bad had me emotional. When Willie tries to sign up for the army and feels so useless he is willing to be a human shield, anything just to belong, Pinky's death (although not sure what happened, hypothermia perhaps). I wanted to clock those two dopey teenagers around the head and ground them for life. A great film I would highly suggest to anyone who wants to watch a proper decent film, but don't expect a Rocky meets The Pursuit of Happiness. It isn't a boxing movie and it isn't a rags to riches story, it is raw, and real and sad.
