Award winners Michael Caine (The Cider House Rules, Hannah and her
Sisters) and Robert Duvall (Tender Mercies) star alongside Oscar nominee
Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense, A.I.) in Secondhand Lions, written
and directed by Tim McCanlies (writer of the acclaimed The Iron Giant
and writer/director of Dancer, Texas).
Secondhand Lions follows the comedic adventures of an introverted 14
year-old boy (Haley Joel Osment) who reluctantly finds himself spending
the summer with a pair of cranky, eccentric great-uncles (Michael Caine
and Robert Duvall). At first appalled by their gruff uncaring manner,
over time he becomes enthralled with his uncles as the exotic tales and
remembrances of their own youthful exploits introduce the boy to a world
of imagination and wonder and re-ignites the old menís spirits.
Co-starring Kyra Sedgwick and Nicky Katt, Secondhand Lions is produced
by David Kirschner, Corey Sienega and Scott Ross.
