Product Description

Product Description

Nine-year-old Sam Paretta is dead, killed in a plane crash. Even though it's been fourteen months since the accident, his mother Telly (Julianne Moore, "Far From Heaven"), still grieves over the loss. But suddenly, her husband (Anthony Edwards, "ER") swears they never had a child and her psychiatrist (Gary Sinise, "C.S.I.: NY") insists she's delusional. But worst of all, there is absolutely noevidence to prove Sam ever existed. Haunted by the memories of her son, Telly's search for the truth propels her into a dark mind-shattering conspiracy of unearthly terror.

From Amazon.co.uk

With a plot that might've been lifted from The X-Files, nothing is quite what it seems in The Forgotten, a psychological conspiracy thriller with Julianne Moore doing fine work as a grieving mother whose nine-year-old son was killed in a plane crash. At least, that's what she's been led to believe, but when even her husband (Anthony Edwards) tries to convince her that she's delusional and never had a child, things start to get very spooky indeed. Dominic West (from HBO's superb series The Wire ) plays a similarly traumatized father, and when they witness some very strange events--and a mysterious man (Linus Roache) who might be indestructible--this glorified B-movie potboiler directed by Joseph Ruben (best known for Dreamscape and The Stepfather) turns into a preposterous but entertaining trip into The Twilight Zone territory. Featuring Alfre Woodard as an intuitive New York detective and Gary Sinise as a seemingly sympathetic psychiatrist, The Forgotten offers adequate shocks and an intriguing, otherworldly study of tenacious parental instinct. It deserved its mixed reviews, but it's a fun spook-fest for rainy-day viewing. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

Format: DVD
The Forgotten is a surprisingly entertaining thriller, most notable for the performance of Julianne Moore who readily throws herself into the role with her customary abandon and bravado. Part psuedo science fiction, and part supernatural mystery, the producers can probably be forgiven for the many plot holes, and unanswered questions; also, you know there's really a problem when malevolent looking federal agents try to cover up the evidence with mere wallpaper. But the movie is certainly beautiful to look at with the gorgeous Julianne constantly bathed in ghostly and ethereal hues of blue and grey that contrast startlingly with her fiery red hair- there's also some fabulous aerial views of New York City, the symbolic significance of which becomes obvious later in the movie.
Questions of loss, grief, and the special union between mother and son form the thematic center of the Forgotten, as Moore plays Telly Paretta, a woman haunted by the memory of her son Sam. The child died in plane 14 months ago, and her worried and affectionate husband, played by Anthony Edwards, and her composed, consoling psychiatrist, Dr. Munce (Gary Sinise), try in vain to help her cope with her sudden loss. She constantly watches a video of Sam, moons over photographs of him, and lovingly touches a baseball mitt that he left behind. Telly is obviously exploring the emotional pain and grief experienced by a mother, and is trying desperately to move on. She's recently decided to return to her job as a freelance editor.
It soon becomes clear that things are not as they seem. Sam's image mysteriously begins to disappear from the photographs, and then her husband, her doctor, and even her neighbors tell her that she never had a son. Telly is convinced they are wrong, and fiercely maintains that her son was real.

To say much about the plot is to give too much away. Suffice to say that if you want to really enjoy this movie stop reading the reviews as some other customers have 'given it away'.
This film dares to cross genres every twenty minutes, starting as an intriguing mystery and developing into a complete mindbend. Yes, it's far-fetched but so was 'Jurassic Park' and no-one complains about that! If you like your drama a little unpredicable get this now. For the rest of you, there's always 'Fantastic Four'...

I saw this film at the cinema. It is all about a woman who has a child, and then suddenly he is gone, and everything about him has gon, except the memory of him in his mothers head. She wants to know what happened, and everyone makes out she is crazy, but she is not. Its full of mystery, and the way in which the film has been done in very clever. Its not the bestest thriller film, but it is a good one. Worth the watch. Involves the woman then going in search for clues and ideas to what happened, she has flashbacks, she meets another person who has had the same thing happen, but he doesn't remember his child, and thinks she is crazy. It is a desperate struggle of a woman trying to get her son back, and convince this man to get his daughter back, and to find out what happened and why. Good plot, sounds boring but is really good. All revealed at end of film. Good ending. Worth the watch.

I didn't expect to enjoy "The Forgotten" as much as I did, expecting a more conventional plot line than the one that materialised. The film starts off slowly, but the mystery that unfolds is intriguing and shocking and there are at least three chilling jump out of your seat moments as the character played by Julianne Moore ,convinced she is not delusional and insane, hunts for her missing son against the backdrop of an autumnal New York City. With the NSA in pursuit, you realise that something Sinister Big Time is up and a thrilling supernatural denouement ensues. Well acted , well paced and the suspense was maintained perfectly throughout. Food for thought about the possible unseen influence of non-human lifeforms on this planet and the unseen ties which make up the essence of the human life experience.

There are a couple of moments in this film that I won't forget in a hurry. To be fair, it's nothing new ideas-wise, tapping into the popular all-American conspiracy theory. It is also very much like Dean Koontz's "Sole Survivor", which is also a movie about children vanishing after a plane crash and NSA cover-ups, though the premise turns out to be different in the end. A whole star has to be given to this review simply for the way the detective is taken off the case - you'll have to see the film to see for yourself, and that's the bit I won't forget. But I had to take the star away again because of the Hollywood ending ... it could have ended so much better ...

I heard about this movie when I was lying in a hospital bed, it came highly recommended by nurses. It was good, possibly better than similar movies ("Flightplan" springs to mind immediately at this point as being faintly similar in plot) - but it still lacked that certain something. I would recommend watching it, but it's not one I would necessarily return to over and over!

Welcome to the era of humans disappearing into the sky. The Forgotten is such an inspirational film that opened the door for films like Left Behind. That's why it deserves 2 stars while Left Behind deserves only one.
