'Louder Than Words' Trailer: At Last, Another Children's Hospital Film as Cloying as 'Patch Adams'
David Duchovny has starred in a film in which his wife dies and he falls in love with the woman who received her heart transplant. In terms of Duchovny's mawkish family tragedies, that is positively gritty compared to what Louder Than Words looks like from this trailer.
Based on a true story, the film sees Duchovny and Hope Davis as the parents of a child who dies, in Davis's arms, of rabies. The daughter's self-stated "top wish" before her death was for the health and well-being of all the children of the world. That's a pretty tall order, so in lieu of that, Daddy Duchovny decides that he will at least try to assist in the health and well-being of some local kids by building a children's hospital. Unfortunately, legislature is opposed to the plan, leaving Duchovny, Davis, and, hey, there's Timothy Hutton to fight against the government and its hatred of children's hospitals. "It's not about a building," Hutton announces on the occasion of his Playing God reunion, "...it's about building a feeling." That feeling is "you've eaten way too much frosting."
