Life as a House

George (Kevin Kline) is no longer in condition to work on the house and is taken to the hospital and dies. Sam (Hayden Christensen), his mom (Kristin Scott Thomas), Alyssa (Jena Malone), Alyssa's mom (Mary Steenburgen) and others finish the house; Sam convinces the neighbor who hates George's dog to stop threatening them with lawsuits because of the house's extra 6 inches of height. Once the house is finished, Sam and his mom go visit the girl who lost her parents years ago in that car accident (where George's father was involved) and talk to her about giving her the house.

Factual error: In the beginning of the film with Coleen after George gets up, also in several other "morning" shots, the sun is always shown near the horizon or reflecting off the ocean. On the west coast this would make this the evening.
