Storyline

After a plane crash, a young therapist, Claire, is assigned by her mentor to counsel the flight's five survivors. When they share their recollections of the incident -- which some say include an explosion that the airline claims never happened -- Claire is intrigued by Eric, the most secretive of the passengers. Just as Claire's professional relationship with Eric -- despite her better judgment -- blossoms into a romance, the survivors begin to disappear mysteriously, one by one. Claire suspects that Eric may hold all the answers and becomes determined to uncover the truth, no matter the consequences. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

When Eric runs out of his apartment irritated by barking dog, you can see a car parked next to his house. It's actually an old Russian "Zhiguli VAZ 2104" produced by VAZ car factory (Volzhski Avtomobilny Zavod) from the middle of '80 till present day. See more »

Goofs

After Claire leaves Norman's apartment one of the passengers tries to keep her from driving away. The first screen shot from inside the car shows her pulling away. The camera angle then cuts immediately to a shot from outside the vehicle and shows the car stationary for a split second just before Claire pulls away. The editing is off by about a second.

If you're an Ann Fan it is worth a shot
25 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since there was no publicity for this film, my expectations for it were pretty low.

It has a slow pace and at times things don't make sense, but they do as the story moves forward. You just have to give it time.

At times it doesn't quite work and in a way doesn't break much new ground, but Ann gives a low key performance that I liked.

And the film did make me think about my life and what it is like to deal with death in sudden fashion, like a plane crash. Don't think they'll be showing this one as an in-flight movie.

I've heard that Sony kept this film quiet so it wouldn't interfere with the Oscar buzz Ann Hathaway's getting for Rachel Getting Married. Which makes sense, but I feel bad for all the people that worked on the film. They must feel abandoned by the studio.
