ON SEPTEMBER 24TH, EVERYTHING YOU’VE EXPERIENCED, EVERYTHING YOU’VE KNOWN, NEVER HAPPENED.
Several months after Telly Paretta’s (Julianne Moore) son dies in a plane crash, she learns that everyone has forgotten him; every trace of him vanishes and it’s as if he never existed. Experienced viewers will believe that the boy did exist, but wonder how those who conned Telly got away with it. Once the explanation comes, we hardly expect the screenwriter to come up with a good resolution, because he can’t. It’s an inventive tale, but too contrived and the ending isn’t logical. The visual effects are good though, and so is Moore.
2004-U.S. 91 min. Color. Directed by Joseph Ruben. Cast: Julianne Moore (Telly Paretta), Dominic West (Ashley Correll), Gary Sinise (Jack Munce), Anthony Edwards, Alfre Woodard, Linus Roache.
