After a plane crash, a young therapist, Claire, is assigned by her mentor to counsel the flight's five survivors. When they share their recollections of the incident -- which some say include an explosion that the airline claims never happened -- Claire is intrigued by Eric, the most secretive of the passengers. Just as Claire's professional relationship with Eric -- despite her better judgment -- blossoms into a romance, the survivors begin to disappear mysteriously, one by one. Claire suspects that Eric may hold all the answers and becomes determined to uncover the truth, no matter the consequences.Written by
When Eric runs out of his apartment irritated by barking dog, you can see a car parked next to his house. It's actually an old Russian "Zhiguli VAZ 2104" produced by VAZ car factory (Volzhski Avtomobilny Zavod) from the middle of '80 till present day. See more »
While Clair and Eric are riding the motorcycle at about 42 min., they are not wearing glasses or goggles. It would be impossible to ride a motorcycle at street speeds without some kind of eye protection without your eyes drying out causing pain, forcing them to close their eyes. In the movie their eyes are open without distress. See more »

I'd like to start off by saying I began watching this movie with a little suspicion, because I checked the ratings here and they weren't really high.
Well, my suspicion wasn't necessary. This movie isn't all about action, explosions and that sort of things. What is does have is a heart, it shows the bond between people and it explains why that bond takes place. Just not in a corny way, this is more of a mix between real-life personalities, suspension, and a big plot-twist at the end kind of like Hitchcock did back in the days. Just not that elaborate. Some comments on this movie say that it lacks originality, but what movie doesn't do that these days ? Almost everything has already been done over and over again.
As concerns the quality of acting, it's just good. Nothing more but certainly nothing less. It's nice to see Anne Hathaway play a different sort of role, besides comedy. Her co-star Patrick Wilson also performs on a high wire. Andre Braugher and David Morse are good at supporting roles and thats is simply what they did in this one. You can't say that the acting wasn't good, therefore I feel sorry that it hasn't been properly promoted because it would have had some potential to getting to be a popular movie.
Conclusion: Like I said in the beginning, it's good, just not a masterpiece. I suggest you watch it and go with the flow, you won't regret it.
