A story about how far we must travel to find the place where we belong.
Adapted by Oscar winner John Irving from his own bestseller, The Cider House Rules is a rich and rapturous tale about family, love and the search to find a place and purpose in the world. Homer Wells (Tobey Maguire) has spent his entire life right were he was born: St. Cloud's orphanage. Here with the unconventional but loving tutelage of Dr Wilbur Larch (1999 Academy Award winner, Michael Caine), Homer has flourished. His life has been simple, innocent and fulfilling. Yet now, as he approaches manhood, Homer yearns to explore the world for himself. When he sets off on his own personal journey, Homer is suddenly introduced to a bigger world full of new experiences - love, friendship, danger, tragedy and betrayal - all of which will profoundly change him and, ultimately, confirm his destiny.
