Movie Summary

Director:
Lawrence Kasdan
Released:

Rating:
R
Mumford is the 1999 dramedy from acclaimed writer-director Lawrence Kasdan (The Big Chill, Body Heat, Silverado, The Accidental Tourist, Dreamcatcher). Loren Dean (Enemy of the State, Space Cowboys, Apollo 13) plays a psychologist called Mumford, practicing in the small town of Mumford (neatly summarizing the theme of assimilation), who achieves success and local popularity more through sympathetic listening and empathy than clinical technique and who is relied by many of the town's people to give them advice on their troubles. No surprise then, that he's not a psychologist at all, but just a man trying to escape the mistakes of his past. However, Dr. Mumford has fallen in love with one of his patients (Hope Davis, About Schmidt, Hearts in Atlantis, The Weather Man). This is good for the doctor, since he really isn't a doctor, yet he's breaking the law for having people telling him their problems, and not being certified.
