Speaking as a medium for 40 years I can identify with this movie
31 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This true story is an excellent movie that took a lot of guts by Shirley Maclaine to admit to, for her career and possible sanity were questionable after its release. I have been a physic for 40 years and can testify that in my experience the content is accurate. I know there are two types of entity with whom I can communicate. In this movie it only explores the possibility of Alien interaction with our lives and the benefits that can have. The early part of the story concentrates more on her relationship with a British Government official and the love affair that results. This is a good, rather bland "ordinary life" contrast to the almost surreal action that follows.
