Story:  Eddie Murphy is back in his first live-action performance since 2012’s A Thousand Words with Mr. Church.  Rather than much of his past work, the film is not a comedy, but a drama concerning the titular Henry Church (Murphy), a talented cook with a love of jazz who is hired by a dying mother as help for her six year old daughter.  While the arrangement is set for six months, it develops into a 15-year journey of friendship and care.  Source:  The Film Stage; IMDB.
