George Monroe (Kevin Kline) is a lonely and sad man. Divorced for ten years, he lives alone on the southern California coast with his pet dog in the same run down shack in which he has lived for twenty-five years, the shack which his father passed down to him. In the intervening years, ostentatious houses have sprung up around him. He’s been at the same architectural firm for twenty years in a job he hates, which primarily consists of building scale models. On the day that he is fired from his job, he is diagnosed with an advanced case of terminal cancer, which he chooses not to disclose to his family.

In many ways, this day is the happiest of his recent life in that he decides to spend what little time he has left doing what he really wants to do, namely build a house he can call his own to replace the shack. He also wants his rebellious sixteen-year-old son, Sam Monroe (Hayden Christensen), to live with him for the summer, hopefully not only to help in the house construction. California Cinematic Dreamin’ aside, the people here are real. Their vulnerabilities are in the open and they deal with each other as best they can. Kline’s son is confused about more than his sexuality, far more. His first girlfriend accepts him and, more importantly, her own sexuality, with a maturity in no way undermined by a delightfully playful demeanor.

Somebody once said that `life’ is what happens when you’re not looking. And it’s so true. Too often we let the years slip by, and the important things slip right along with them; and it’s only when something happens that we start to pay attention, and by then it’s too late to do anything about it. The good news, however, is that as long as you’re still breathing there’s still a chance to make amends, or at least try to. You can try, not to make up for past mistakes (and we’ve all made them), but to make `today’ count, which is what a man at a particular juncture in his life discovers and sets out to do, in `Life As A House,’ directed by Irwin Winkler, and starring Kevin Kline. George Monroe (Kline) is an architect, a man who can design anything, with the exception of that which is the most important: His own life. He has a failed marriage– now divorced for ten years from Robin (Kristin Scott Thomas)– a failed relationship with his now sixteen-year-old son, Sam (Hayden Christensen), he’s getting on in years and he’s unhappy, which is driven home by circumstances involving his job and his health that make him abruptly sit up and take notice. His `house,’ literally and figuratively, in not in order. And he decides to do something about it. He’s determined to tear down his old house and rebuild a new one, and he begins by arranging for Sam to come and live with him for the summer. And it will be a summer that will affect, not only George and Sam, but Robin, and a number of others, as well; a summer in which the trivial things of life are put on hold; and for once, the important things are embraced.
