I also saw this film at a free screening with a friend. I thought that
it had soul. Yes they tried to make it an action film but it still
worked....mainly because of some great performances by the boy played
by Harry Eden, Alison Heywood played by Frances O'Connor and Elizabeth
Chase played by Angelia Bassett. Although the script was flawed and the
music was not appropriate the film was a very interesting comment on
our relationships with our family and our friends.
What would you do if you lost a family member to a coma?
You would probably stop at nothing to try to bring them out. I think that that was who the Elizabeth Chase character was - a person who would go the distance to get the little girl out of a bad situation. Her character brought hope to the Heywood family in a time of no hope. They had nowhere to turn. On top of that the private clinic they go to in is shut down by the Police. A bad situation when you are desperately in need of help....
I thought that the film looked great as well. The director of photography (Lukas Strebel) did a great job.
Basically this was another Ron Bass script that needed some work but was pulled out the "Not great" category by some good directing and strong performances.
See it in the cinema for the wide screen format. It will not transfer to video well....unless you have a 50" gas plasma screen. :-)
