Product Description

Thriller starring Toni Collette. A forensic psychologist, Sally Rowe (Collette), is appointed by police to determine whether there's enough evidence to lay murder charges against 17-year-old Alex (Eddie Redmayne), accused in the shotgun death of his schoolmate Nigel (Tom Sturridge). With no tangible evidence, the detective on the case is under pressure from Alex's influential father to have the charges dropped. Delving deeply into Alex and Nigel's bizarre symbiotic pact, Rowe discovers that though dead, Nigel's psychological effect on Alex is far from diminished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice surprise. Should have had bigger release! 16 Jan 2008
By Matthew
Format:DVD
FEAR AND EVIL MAKE DEADLY COMPANIONS.

From writer/director Greg Read, LIKE MINDS stars Oscar® nominee Toni Collette (The Night Listener, In Her Shoes, About A Boy) and is the cinematic debut of hot upcoming young star, London-born Eddie Redmayne (The Good Shepherd, Elizabeth - The Golden Age).

LIKE MINDS is a brilliant psychological thriller and a highly original screenplay brought chillingly to life by outstanding performances from the key cast.

When the new boy Nigel arrives at school, Alex suddenly finds himself lumped with a new and very weird dorm-mate. Quiet, cold and with an unhealthy pre-occupation of all things dead, Nigel's other bizarre interests extend to a macabre fascination with pure blood-lineage and history. Despite their differences, slowly Nigel manages to insinuate himself into Alex's life and soon an inexplicable bond forms between the two boys, that will lead to the ultimate tragedy of Nigel's death,

But all is not as it seems, and the complexities of the mystery and its sinister depths are yet to be revealed.

Appointed by local police to review a murder case, forensic psychologist, Sally Rowe is faced with the challenge of determining if accused 17 year-old Alex should face charges for the shotgun death of schoolmate Nigel Colbie. Alex's highly influential father is putting pressure on local authorities to drop the case against his son based on lack of evidence, but Sally's investigation begins to uncover some disturbing facts. It surfaces that the relationship between the two boys is based on a bizarre symbiotic pact that led to the tragedy, and that it's influence on Alex, despite Nigel's death, is far from diminished.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Do Better 18 April 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film, set in an expensive-looking boys' school somewhere undefined in the UK (Scotland?) was made by a South Australian group funded by their State. It could have been a really good film but, as it is, is merely "quite good".

The problem illustrated by this film is that it is always hazardous for a director to go beyond his cultural parameters. It is obvious that some of the film was made in the UK and most of the actors seem to be English, but the trains used as part of the plot are not of a type I ever saw in the UK; worse, the way the 17-year-old suspect is treated could never (I hope) happen in the UK. The young man is charged with murder, but questioned AFTER charge (a no-no in the British system), is kept in police custody for literally days without a lawyer or parent present and is questioned in such absence; he is brutally slapped by the main detective because he insults a woman psychologist who, by the way, also manages to offer the young man inducements and/or threats in order to extract a statement. Whisky Wow Wow! I am a barrister so sensitive to these things, but even so...

As to the story, it starts very well, but peters out a bit into rather facile plotlines involving the Knights Templar and Cathars, all good ideas but not being developed, really.

Pity, it could have been a lot better. Still worth watching, though.
PS: On watching it for a second times, I see that the locations credited were in Yorkshire and on the Welsh border, with some work probably done elsewhere (I still think the police station was in Australia somewhere, having lived three years there a long time ago).

Speedy delivery, superb condition, excellent film making and performance throughout the film. What else one would expect to be satisfied as a customer I do not know. However I know that this is going to be my last review, because you "require" certain number of words. There should be no such demand as to use certain numbers of words.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still not sure of the truth 8 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD because I lost the end of the film on my recorder due to a channel malfunction. I just had to know if he was guilty or not. Unfortunately I still don't know but this is a good watch if you don't mind a bit of human dissection. Eddie Redmayne and Toni Collette both act their parts well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like Minds DVD 22 April 2013
By tina
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Creepy psychological thriller set in an exclusive boys school. A lot of twists and turns in the plot, a lot of grisly goings on, a really good film for watching when there isn't much else on the television you would want to watch. I would recommend it to anyone who likes psychological thrillers.
