The story begins on Louis Drax's 9th birthday, when a lifetime of curious mishaps culminates in the boy's near-fatal fall. Desperate to reveal the strange circumstances behind the young boy's accident and dark coincidences that have plagued his entire life, Dr. Allan Pascal (Dornan) is drawn into a thrilling mystery that explores the nature of the sixth sense, testing the boundaries of fantasy and reality.Written by
On a family picnic on a cliff overlooking the ocean, 9- year old Louis Drax (Aiden Longworth) falls over the cliff and ends up in a coma. His mother Natalie (Sarah Gordon) says the father Peter Drax (Aaron Paul) pushed Louis over the cliff. The police and doctors are searching for the truth about what happened and Peter Drax is missing and is a suspect.
We come to learn via flashbacks and his narration that Louis Drax is a very injury prone child. Doctor Perez (Oliver Platt) believes the boy is harming himself looking for attention. Then the letters arrive seemingly written by Louis Drax, but how can that be when he is in a coma? The letters tell about things that only Louis Drax knows and the mystery deepens. Dr Pascal (Jamie Dornan) believes something else is going on with Louis Drax.
It appears that maybe, just maybe, something supernatural is going on. Now you are getting warm, but how to prove it?
There are a couple twists and some may say "convoluted" but nevertheless they are there and come to light. Can you guess?
Notables: A Sea Monster and a friend to Louis is the voice of Aaron Paul; Barbara Hershey as Violet Drax, Peter's mother.
All in all a very good mystery - convoluted or not - and the acting by all sells it. Kudos. (9/10)
Violence: Yes, but brief.. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: Yes, but very brief
