Synopsis

Secondhand Lions follows the comedic adventures of an introverted 14 year-old boy who reluctantly finds himself spending the summer with a pair of cranky, eccentric great-uncles. 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 men's spirits.

February 2nd, 2004

Every week films get a second chance at success from the home market; or, in some cases, a first chance at success.
