The Cobbler (2014)


Max Simkin repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way.

You can rent this on iTunes or Amazon Instant Video for $6.99 and I suggest you do. It is a really good 'superhero' origin story that strays slightly in tone but succeeds in the end. After watching this I am looking forward to a sequel.
