After a plane crash, a young therapist, Claire, is assigned by her mentor to counsel the flight's five survivors. When they share their recollections of the incident -- which some say include an explosion that the airline claims never happened -- Claire is intrigued by Eric, the most secretive of the passengers. Just as Claire's professional relationship with Eric -- despite her better judgment -- blossoms into a romance, the survivors begin to disappear mysteriously, one by one. Claire suspects that Eric may hold all the answers and becomes determined to uncover the truth, no matter the consequences. Written by
Eric's apartment is at 1007 East Cordova Street, Vancouver, British Columbia. See more »
When Arkin comes to visit Claire at her group therapy room there's a cut of Arkin talking with the first person that approach him. Then we see a cut of that person talking with Arkin. Followed by a cut back to Arkin responding to that persons answer. During the first cut of Arkin we clearly can see someone in the background walking downstairs. That person walks down the same steps when we see the second cut of Arkin talking. See more »

I thoroughly enjoyed Passengers, its moving (and rather sad) story, strong emotional impact, beautiful photography and convincing performances, especially when it comes to the part of Hathaway. Some minor flaws (slow pace at times and a number of questions left unanswered) can be easily forgiven.
But I made a terrible mistake to read the IMDb comments before watching this film. Even if those reviews are mostly accurate and do not expressly reveal the truth behind the mysterious events on the screen, the suggested references to other movies that may (or may not) be inspirational for the creators have significantly diminished effect of the surprise ending.
I can easily name at least half a dozen of titles dealing with similar subject matter, but it may be difficult to guess what is actually going on until the punchline, unless you are "tuned to a specific station" from the very beginning and know what to expect.
Do yourself a favor - watch the film with an unbiased attitude, read the comments afterwards.
