Anna Katharina Schwabroh,
A teacher opens a time capsule that has been dug up at his son's elementary school; in it are some chilling predictions -- some that have already occurred and others that are about to -- that lead him to believe his family plays a role in the events that are about to unfold.
As a writer myself, I found this to be an excellent movie--and one reason why I would call it "The Writer's Nightmare". Many of the thoughts expressed in the movie will resonate with most writers, and certainly also give them food for thought. It touches on why writers write--for commercial reasons, to please the masses; or for personal reasons; or for other, more darker reasons.
Every writer hopes to one day write "the masterpiece", the "Great American Novel" or "Great Canadian Novel" (in my case), and that's what much of this movie hinges on.
I will say that although I think Timothy Hutton is a great choice for the lead character, he certainly doesn't portray a lot of emotion on the surface.
