Storyline

When Jessica King goes missing, all eyes turn to Annabelle Wilson. Not as a murder suspect, but as a clairvoyant. Many of the towns folk go to Annabelle for help, and Jessica's fiancée, Wayne Collins, turns to Annabelle for possible guidance. Annabelle feels that she can't help, but this doesn't stop her from constantly getting visions of Jessica's fate. Written by FilmFanUK

Trivia

The cards Annie Wilson uses to perform her "readings" are actually Zener Cards, which are used to perform ESP tests. The cards are not known for their fortune-telling abilities, but this is not necessarily a mistake. Fortune tellers can use a variety of cards from tarot decks to ordinary poker cards to give readings. All that truly matters is that the four elements of nature (fire, water, earth, and air) are represented in some form. Annie would still be able to deliver readings with them as long as she knew which symbols represented which element. See more »

Goofs

29 May 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

brilliant acting. impressive cast. and the unique Cate Blanchette. pieces of a most common and special thriller. tale of a gift and which hunting. and force of a woman out of any pressure. not action is important. but the structure. not fear. but delicacy of feelings. moral lesson, metaphor, remember of Christian values, subtle game and silent joy of inspired end. a film as silk. colors, touch, waters of past, the truth and desire to give to others each slice of your gift. vulnerability as heart of force. courage as skin for profound fear. all as beautiful work of a great actress and precise art of each of her partners.
