It’s been a while since we have seen Tom Hanks on the big screen – not since Angels and Demons if you really want to know – but this year he is back with his new movie Larry Crowne.
The film sees him reunite with his Charlie Wilson’s War co-star Julia Roberts as he takes on the role of the title character.
When appealing everyman Larry Crowne (Hanks) is inexplicably fired from his job as a big box store clerk, he realizes it’s time for some meaningful change in his life.
Deeply in debt and without direction, he returns to college where he befriends a group of scooter-riding students and eventually develops a real affection for his beautiful speech class instructor, Mercedes Tainot (Roberts).
Charming and smart, “Larry Crowne” reminds us of life’s small surprises. Sometimes clouds really do have a silver lining.
It’s also about the power of new beginnings like the time Larry Crowne, an ordinary man with a gentle heart, was forced to downsize his world… and ended up expanding his life.
Larry Crowne is released 1st July. Take a look at the images for the movie:
