The Night Listener is one of those strange movies that really
doesn't fix any genre, however it can be split into three sections,
drama, thriller and mystery! The story follows a depressed late
night radio host (played by the talented Robin Williams) just having
broken up with his boyfriend of many years.
His agent gives him this inspirational book written by a young kid
who had suffered a very hard childhood, filled with sexual abuse.
The kid (played by Rory Culkin) bonds with Robin over the course of
a bunch of phone calls, and Robin becomes excited at the prospect of
being a father figure for the kid.
Living with his foster mother, the Night Listener finds out that
this child called "Pete" is also sick and is expected to die sooner
rather than later. Definitely a great drama movie which leaves you
thinking even after the movie has finished. Is it real or is it
