This comedic and touching family film follows the adventures of a shy young boy who is sent to spend the summer with his eccentric uncles. At first shocked by his uncles' unconventional behavior that includes ordering African lions through the mail, the boy soon becomes enthralled with unraveling the mystery that has followed the uncles for years. Hearing tales of their exotic adventures involving kidnapped princesses, Arabian sheiks and lost treasure, not only brings him closer to his uncles but also teaches him what it means to believe in something... whether it's true or not. Starring Academy Award-nominee Haley Joel Osment (“The Sixth Sense,” “Artificial Intelligence: AI”), Two-time Academy Award-winner Michael Caine (“Batman Begins,” “The Prestige”), and Academy Award-winner Robert Duvall (“The Godfather,” “Apocalypse Now”).
Over one unpredictable Central Texas summer in the early 1960s, everything in the lives of a family of strangers is about to change forever. For 14-year-old Walter (Haley Joel Osment), his great uncles' farm in rural Texas is the last place on earth he wants to spend the summer. Eccentric and gruff Hub and Garth (Robert Duvall and Michael Caine) are rumored to have been bank robbers, mafia hit men and/or war criminals in their younger days. But little by little, through stories spun against a backdrop of the dusty Texas night, an amazing tale comes to life via Walter's vivid, colorful imaginings--a tale set in a long-ago exotic, mysterious place where men rode stallions and fought with swords; where beautiful princesses tangled with treacherous sheiks; and where the two unlikely heroes lived an adventure of which most people only dream.
