Henry Fool Film Poster


Hal Hartley gathers together another cast of oddballs and eccentrics for this quirky adult comedy. The lives of shy dustman Simon Grim (James Urbaniak), his depressed mother (Maria Porter) and his nymphomaniac sister (Parker Posey), are thrown into disarray when Henry Fool (Thomas Jay Ryan), a self-styled intellectual and raging egomaniac, arrives in their home. Henry encourages Simon to express himself through poetry and in doing so unwittingly unleashes a new literary force in the world. But while his protegé's obscene verse is met with immediate acclaim, Henry's own literary efforts flounder in obscurity.
