Supernatural thriller starring Anne Hathaway as Claire Summers, a young psychotherapist assigned to work with a group of survivors of an air crash. Mystery and confusion shroud the recollections of the five passengers, which seem to contradict the official version of the accident given by the airline. Claire is particularly intrigued by one of the passengers, the secretive Eric (Patrick Wilson). As her relationship with him takes a romantic turn despite her better judgement, Claire feels as though she is finally getting nearer to the truth - but then the survivors begin inexplicably to disappear one by one...

The film is primarily suspense/mystery but it's also a drama, romance and thriller; there are elements of eerieness which really caught me off guard! It got my attention very quickly and managed to hold it to the very end. It's an interesting, unusual film that will have you periodically wondering what the film is actually about! It's not a loud action-packed film but more of a quiet film that will unfold in its own time and it's definitely worth the wait - I liked the way the story and the characters developed and I was quite moved by the end of the film which was unexpected!
I don't even remember seeing a trailer for this film so don't let this one fly by under your radar - it's a satisfying treat of a film! Highly recommended!
With the creepy mystique and the slow pace and mysterious people, our minds are racing ahead. We remember all of the conspiracy movies spooky movies and just downright movies of all kinds in the twists. Okay which one is this one going to be? Now who is paranoid?
It is best to let the movie unfold into with the flow and you may find that you enjoy it and with all movies that have a mystery about them you will want to re-watch this to see what you missed.
One suspicious character is Airline representative Arkin played by David Morse. See him again in "Contact" (1997).
I only saw the Blu-ray so I cannot compare to other versions but be sure to also listen to the voice over commentary by Rodrigo Garcia - Director and Patrick Wilson who plays Eric.
I was quite irritated at the beginning because it didn't make much sense, doctor seemed to be as vulnerable and disturbed as her patients, her actions were illogical, her therapy bleak. The suggestion that the air company is covering the facts sort of hang in the nowhere, nobody acted the way I would expect under the circumstances. It all fell into place in the end leaving me with a couple of tears even. There was something about it that touched me deeply. I think acting was pretty good and was one of the reasons why I didn't switch it off before it all made sense.
So, it is not a disaster movie, not a thriller movie, and not really a ghost story either. But it is story of love, human relationships and the importance of being in touch with each other.
I found the pace of the movie rather slow, and the movie itself lacking any dramatic development. There was,for example,a clear opportunity, which the film failed to exploit, to add some extra depth to Claire's therapeutic sessions with the patients/survivors.
Also, the embarrassingly unethical relationship between Claire and her patient, Eric, was taken , for most of the movie's duration,as an every day's occurrence, and with no explanation what so ever. The viewer has to wait for more than an hour for every thing to be resolved by the end of the movie.
I have given the film a 3- star because although the acting, especially by the two main leads, is good, one can not enthuse much about the quality of the script nor the dramatic element of the mystery itself.
Finally,the concept of a dreadful aircrash would not ordinarily be my first choice for a relaxing movie watch.
Claire eventually succumbs to Eric (Patrick Wilson), but is troubled that her patients have stopped coming to group while suspecting the airline is attempting a cover-up. The ending I had figured out before I watched the film from reading the back of the DVD cover.
Hathaway always gives us a good performance no matter how bad the script. She was the saving grace of this otherwise predictable film. Blu-Ray included deleted scenes as extras.
Guide: No F-bombs. Implied sex. Minor love making scene. Butt crack nudity.
