#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – United Press International journalist Will Bloom and his French freelance photojournalist wife Josephine Bloom, who is pregnant with their first child, leave their Paris base to return to Will’s hometown of Ashton, Alabama on the news that his father, Edward Bloom, stricken with cancer, will soon die, he being taken off chemotherapy treatment. Although connected indirectly through Will’s mother/Edward’s wife, Sandra Bloom, Will has been estranged from his father for three years since his and Josephine’s wedding. Will’s issue with his father is the fanciful tales Edward has told of his life all his life, not only to Will but the whole world. As a child when Edward was largely absent as a traveling salesman, Will believed those stories, but now realizes that he does not know his father, who, as he continues to tell these stories, he will never get to know unless Edward comes clean with the truth before he dies. On the brink of his own family life beginning, Will does not want to be the kind of father Edward has been to him. One of those stories from Edward’s childhood – that he saw his own death in the glass eye of a witch – led to him embracing life since he would not have to fear death knowing when and how it would eventually come. The question is whether Will will be able to reconcile Edward’s stories against his real life, either directly from Edward before he dies and/or from other sources, and thus allow Will to come to a new understanding of himself and his life, past, present and future.
Plot: Throughout his life Edward Bloom has always been a man of big appetites, enormous passions and tall tales. In his later years, he remains a huge mystery to his son, William. Now, to get to know the real man, Will begins piecing together a true picture of his father from flashbacks of his amazing adventures.

This movie reminds me story of me and my father, before he died on cancer
My father was a brilliant sculptor and a great visionary. When I was a kid, I never could explain what he was doing. I got it a month before his death when i was 26. This film filled my eyes with tears, because it reminded me him. he had a lot of ideas and brilliant and original ideas for improving the world, but for all his life he could not sell it to anyone, because those ideas filled his whole day. Literally. His whole apartment was filled with papers. Thank you for this movie. Thank you for the message. I would add a note that when we dream, we are escaping from the world of facts and truths. When my father said that if you think of anything in life, you have to write it down because what comes to your mind it never comes again it changed my life. Now I’m writing a book – a novel from environment of Mesopotamia and that just because my father was someone who believed in imagination and creative values.
Can you measure a man by the tales he tells?
One thing for certain, director Tim Burton knows how to entertain. BIG FISH is clever and full of bliss, wonderment and bittersweet joy. Ed Bloom(Albert Finney)is dying and his son Will(Billy Crudup)feels the suspected tall tales of his father’s life may have taken something away from their relationship. He wishes to hear his father tell his true life story, only to hear the same old tales with relish. Some great visuals and a very entertaining story line. The young Ed Bloom is played by Ewan McGregor. Jessica Lange plays Sandra Bloom. Also in the cast are: Danny DeVito, Steve Buscemi, Matthew McGrory and Helen Bonham Carter. BIG FISH is paced with an energetic soundtrack that features: Canned Heat, Buddy Holly, Bing Crosby, Pearl Jam, The Allman Brothers, Danny Elfman and Elvis Presley.
