The Book of Love (aka The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea)
Featuring original music by Justin Timberlake, The Descendants meets Silver Linings Playbook in The Book of Love, an emotional, funny and life-affirming story of how a widower’s life is given new meaning thanks to a friendship with a most unusual young drifter.
In order to fulfil a promise he made to his late wife, Henry, an introverted widower, pursues an unlikely friendship with Millie, an independent but troubled teenage girl. Millie asks Henry to use his talent as an architect to help her with a mysterious goal: to build a raft that she can use to sail across the ocean and find her long lost father.
Despite pressure from people in Henry’s professional and personal life to move on and reengage with his old way of living, Henry agrees to help her. To aid them, Henry enlists the help of two of his company’s construction workers to help build the raft. As the bond between them grows, Henry and Millie discover that their friendship is the key to overcoming their losses. Together, this quirky and unexpected family embarks on an incredible adventure.
