Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
The family man Abe Dale is having lunch with his wife and son in a restaurant, when a man kills them in front of Abe and shoots himself in the mouth. A couple of days later, the grieving Abe misses his family and commits suicide ingesting many pills at home, but is rescued by his friend Marty Bloom and saved by the doctors. His Near Death Experience makes him see white light in some people and to hear Electronic Voice Phenomena, i.e., manifestations of voices of ghosts or spirits through static on electronic devices. Soon he discovers that the white light means that the person is going to die, and Abe saves three lives including his nurse Sherry Clarke. While watching a video recorded by his son, Abe finds that the killer had saved the lives of his wife and son three days before the murder. He investigates the incident and finds that when you save, you must kill; otherwise many innocents will die three days later. Written by

(at around 1h 6 mins) The phrase "Tria mera" isn't proper greek, nor is it how "third day" is in the Bible. In greek "third day" is "triti mera". "Tria" means three and "triti" means third. The actual phrase from the bible is also "triti mera". Furthermore, if you try to turn "Tria mera" to numerical value using the greek numericals, you get 557 and not 666. Using the movie's numerical values, "triti mera" would have a value of 1074. However, "Tria Mera" does work if you take into account that the numerical values of letters are different for lowercase vs. uppercase. See more »
The Light is an impressive effort for Patrick Lussier!
Let me start this off by saying that White Noise 2 is amazing! Far better than its predecessor which, suffered more at its conclusion for having a lazy finale. Nathan Fillion is brilliant as Abe, a man who is revived from death after attempt at suicide over the murder of his family. He now can see a light on people who may die within the minute or the next day. He sets out to be the hero, only to find out that meddling with deaths plan will result in disastrous consequences. This film is visual impressive, well paced for its 97 minutes and is very strong in the drama department, the acting is great and there are no cheesy moments within range. I loved every minute of it and I recommend you see this psychological/thriller/drama.
