In New York, Telly Paretta has been under the psychiatric care of A doctor for months, the therapy to help her deal with the grief associated with losing her nine year old son, Sam, one of 6 children in a plane which disappeared, Slowly, incidents make it seem like Telly is losing her grip on the past, until one day all physical evidence of Sam ever existing disappears.. her husband, Jim and Dr. Munce try to explain to her that her therapy is to help her get over the delusion that she /had a son. As Telly alone goes on a search for evidence to prove the existence of Sam, the only person she is eventually able to convince is Ash Correll, an ex-Hockey player whose daughter was also one of the missing children. One other person they're able to convince of there ever having been a Sam and Lauren is NYC cop, Ann Pope. Pope believes that 2 people having the same delusion is not a coincidence, Pope has to figure who she can or can't trust in the matter in uncovering the truth.Written by
When Telly is in Ash's apartment for the first time Ash takes a drink from a glass. There is some liquor left in the glass but when he turns and places it on the counter to refill it, the glass is empty. See more »
(Jan 2009) The network cable versions have changed the plot by removing all mention of the children being involved in a plane crash. Instead, the "died" in a bus crash. The word "bus" is dubbed in throughout. Newspaper articles are edited to reflect this. Also, the company "Quest Airline" is edited in dialog and on screen as simply "Quest". See more »
Julianne Moore is once again the perfect eye candy. Even though she has been nominated several times for an Academy Award, her beauty alone makes her a great actress. In The Forgotten, Moore is more than amazing. A surprise of a science fiction film, Moore stars in what begins as a drama and quickly becomes a thriller. By the end of the movie, the audience finds themselves sitting through science fiction. One of Moore's better films, The Forgotten is one of those movies where you find yourself on the edge of your seat. Although I found the movie short, running under 2 hours, it was a fun ride none the less. Lee Tergesen co-stars as one of the NSA agents. It's good to see good actors make a good movie.
