Synopsis


Mr. Church
In 1965 Los Angeles, cancer-stricken Marie (Natascha McElhone) and her ten-year-old daughter Charlotte are shocked to learn that one of Marie's former lovers has hired a black cook named Mr. Church (Eddie Murphy) to take care of them during her illness. Over the course of 15 years, Mr. Church becomes a father figure to Charlotte (played as an adult by Britt Robertson), and he even takes her in when she gets pregnant from a one-night stand. Directed by Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy). ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    Mr. Church is based on true events. It is the heartwarming story of a relationship built on duty that turned into caring. Eddie Murphy is perfect in the title role of the rigid, warm, and enigmatic Mr. Church. I watched this on VUDU, and will wait to purchase from Best Buy when the 4k HDR version is released. I only purchase dvds in UHD (4k HDR) or 3D. Would have given it 5 stars except for the missing format. If that does not matter to you, this is a definite 5 star disc.

    Not your classic Oscar contender but Eddie does a good job in this heart warming coming of age film. My only draw back was they did not give Eddie Murphy character a defining background that they gave the other characters, IMO. All in all, I really enjoyed it.

    Eddie Murphy can do drama, when he wants to. This is another subtle performance that most fans will dismiss, but take a look. There is award worthy performances in this film. The Blu-Ray is exquisite. Too bad only the DVD is available in store.

    In the past I have avoided movies with Eddie Murphy due to their subject themes and profanity. This movie, however, portrays Murphy in a softer and more humbling nature as a gifted cook dedicated to the family who has hired him.

    Eddie Murphy is back in a role unlike any you have seen. This is a drama about an extended family, friendship. Murphy is good in his role and co-star Britt Robertson is credible. Heart warming movie. Good watch.
