Storyline

Writer-director Charlie McDowell returns to Sundance this year with a thriller about a scientist (played by Robert Redford) who uncovers scientific proof that there is indeed an afterlife. His son is portrayed by Jason Segel, who's not too sure about his father's "discovery", and Rooney Mara plays a mystery woman who has her own reasons for wanting to find out more about the afterlife. Written by Barry Brown, Park City, UT

Shyamalan does "Brainstorm", kinda-sorta...
8 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A corporate/committee attempt to construct 'profound' entertainment without the slightest hint of an organic connection between any of the moving parts. The 'romance' is Rooney Mara doing her best working with human green-screen Jason Segel. I blame his presence, along with the judgment of whoever thought he was a good idea, for keeping this in the shallow end of the pool. At least he wasn't Vince Vaughn.
