How Starbuck's Saved My Life

No kidding. A movie title coming to a theater near you in 2012... starring none other than Tom Hanks. This, according to IMDB and Tom's page. Can you believe the man has no less than 11 movies in the works... eleven?! Wow.

"This is the true, surprising story of an old white man who was kicked out of the top of the American Establishment, by chance met a young African-American woman from a completely different background, and came to learn what is important in life. He was born into privilege on the affluent Upper East Side of Manhattan, she into poverty in the projects in Brooklyn. He once had a high-powered advertising job and now had nothing; she came from the streets and now had succeeded - so much so that she was able to offer a stranger a chance to change himself. This is my story, and like all surprising stories, it starts with an accident."

This book I might just read before it comes to the big screen.

  1. I had heard of this guy at one time (someone sent me the story). I don't think I'm going to miss this one.
