Trivia

One of Atom Egoyan's intentions with the film was to explore absences in the human condition, in this case largely from the viewpoint of Simon who has grown up without his natural parents. See more »

Goofs

When Sabine arrives at the door, it is gently snowing and her black coat has some snow on it. Once she enters the house (a different set, her coat no longer has snow on it and the rate of snow, as seen through the window behind her, is at a much faster rate. See more »

Quotes

Morris: When someone carries that kind of anger around all of the time, they can seem stupid. That's the thing about anger, it sucks up a lot of intelligence.

Adoration
25 March 2012 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Interesting, I wouldn't say all together successful movie about Religion, persecution, customs, you know, Atom Egoyan's favorite subjects it seems. As a matter of fact, for the first half hour or so, I thought we were being treated to a different take on "Ararat", Egoyan's (quite great) film from a few years back dealing with yes, Religion, persecution and customs. But then the film takes a bit of a left tum, gets a little talky and preachy, and ends on an interesting note. In the film, a teacher encourages a student to make up a story about his Dad being a terrorist and how he got his Mom to bring a bomb on a plane for him. only to be stopped by customs. The story takes a life of it's own, affecting everyone around him, why would the teacher do this? It's somewhat tricky and confusing, and Egoyan does an amicable job to keep a totally convoluted story afloat, because this baby goes off in all directions. Again, it gets to be a bit much, but under Egoyan's touch, is certainly watchable.
