Pay It Forward
This has got to be my absolute favourite film. It stars Haley Joel Osment (The kid from sixth sense, another of my favourite films) Helen Hunt as his Mum, Jon Bon Jovi as his very distant Dad and Kevin Spacey as the school teacher who sparks it all off.
Trevor (Haley Joel Osment) has a school project where he has to think of something that will change the world. He comes up with the 'Pay It Forward' concept. You do one good deed for three people who then pay it forward to three other people. This continues with everyone paying it forward to three people so what starts as one good deed can ultimately affect the whole world.
As I am aware, this is not a new concept, I believe it was described in a letter written by Benjamin Franklin back in the 1700's but there are a lot of people who support the theory and there is even a foundation for supporters to join (payitforwardfoundation.org)
The film was originally a novel by Catherine Ryan Hyde but in my opinion it is one of the rare occasions when the film is better than the book so if you haven't seen it yet, you must. Let me know what you think.
