Elizabeth Mitchell plays Jim Caviezel's mother. In reality, Mitchell is younger than Caviezel. Similarly, though the story and Mitchell's portrayal suggest that her character is about the same age as her husband, played by Dennis Quaid, she is 16 years younger than Quaid. At the time of the film's release, Quaid had just turned 46, Caviezel was 31, and Mitchell was 30. See more »

Changing the past to affect the future may not be a new concept in film, but "Frequency" handles it deftly and with heart. The acting is superb, and as far as I can tell the plot is nearly airtight. It keeps you on your toes as the story twists in what feels like six directions at once and keeps you in emotional sync with the characters. The past/present connections are stirring and intriguing, especially the single-flash cuts at pivotal moments. This is one of the few movies about which I can honestly say, "I laughed, I cried, I was scared stupid." Truly the only good movie so far this year.
