Once, man and those in the water were linked. They inspired us. They spoke of the future. Man listened and it became real. But man does not listen very well.

Lady in the Water brings M Night back to the American pop culture spotlight, where he belongs! It is so refreshing to see so much imagination back into the theatres! Lady in the Water is so different from any other movie choice out today and I think it is bold and creative of M Knight to bring his creativity to the big screen. Also, the concept of the entire movie taking place in one apartment complex is brilliant. Many different types of people are brought together by the "Cove" and of course by the mystical Lady. Paul Giamatti can add another classic into his resume as he works his way into being one of the best present day screen actors. The other characters of the movie are very entertaining, especially the Asian mother daughter duo who understand the legend of the Lady better than anyone. Get ready for a major burst of imagination when you go to see Lady in the Water! Thinking about the movie afterwards will only make you love it even more
