Alison Lohman had a small role as a cancer patient but was cut out of the movie. Since she shaved her hair off for the part, she had to wear a wig throughout her next movie, White Oleander (2002). See more »
When Joe is walking down the hall to the nurse after seeing the dead man go into the room, the elevator behind the nurse opens, but in the next shot, it's closed. This was because of a deleted scene in which Joe's dead wife was supposed to appear in the elevator. See more »

It's bad, Joe. They're evacuating the villages. We're about to be washed out. We're hearing gunfire now.
Can you... can you get to Calamar? Can you get across the border to Columbia?
They're putting us on the bus. I don't know where they're taking us. Joe? Joe?

Dragonfly was a good thriller movie and was very well written. Kevin Costner and Kathy Bates were good. The movie did bore you a little at times, but in the ending the story picks up and flows greatly. The movie is about Joe (Kevin Costner), a doctor whose wife dies in a bus accident in a foreign country while working for the Red Cross.When she dies, Joe is devastated, and works overtime at the hospital, and is uncomfortable staying at his own house with his wife's menacing bird. But then, Joe finds that children dying at the hospital have seen his wife when they are near death, like a young boy named Jeffrey who is at the hospital for cancer. Now, Joe must find what his wife wants him to find.
This movie was interesting and good. I give Dragonfly a 9 out of 10. :)
