Professor Addington brings a small group of his post-grad clinical psychology students on board to help him pursue the case of a teenage girl, Lai, with unusual mental abilities. It soon becomes clear that Lai is manipulating the situation in ways they are not able to control. When Lai's connection with student Madison builds amid several unexplained deaths, the question of who is responsible becomes paramount.Written by
Impressive...all things considered. How many low budget family project movies are even watchable?
This movie is relatively coherent until the end. The ending is a bit course and choppy. Almost rushed. It forces the watcher to make slightly larger cognitive leaps then typically reasonable.
As an old friend once said, "Can you make folks cry when you play and sing?" Either deliberately or accidentally this movie creates an emotional anxiety using nontraditional methods.
Nice performance by Isabel and Brian certainly had his moments.
The subject of causality needed more depth. The viewer becoming the viewed. The two directionality of observation. The cycle. The paradox. Impressive subject when you play to your strengths. It's a pity there wasn't more dancing.
This movie shows great potential for all involved and will serve as a wonderful calling card. Remember the rewards of humility and perseverance.
