I was surprised at the critic’s lukewarm reception of Clint Eastwood’s latest film as a director. I think one reason is that the film was marketed as a supernatural thriller involving three characters, rather than a spiritual journey of three characters whose lives intertwine to help each other grow into their empowerment. I guess I would find it rather boring if I was expecting a ghost story/thriller and didn’t believe in the existence of the spiritual realm.
I found it to be a very inspiring, surprisingly quiet story (a story supported by a profound background of inner peace and connectedness) of three characters in spite of the drama in their lives. The first is a woman, Cecile De France, who is a big-name TV journalist who has a near death experience and as a result decides to report on the existence of spiritual realms. The second is a factory worker who refuses to give in to his clairvoyant talents and refuses to give in to all the requests from people around him for a reading. The third is a very young orphan boy who just lost his twin brother. He feels quite scared and alone and would very much like to hear from his twin.
