LISTEN FOR THE TRUTH.
Gabriel Noone (Robin Williams), a radio personality, builds a relationship on the phone with a 14-year-old boy who was raped numerous times when he was younger… but is it for real? Williams makes another thriller, this time portraying a storyteller who becomes obsessed with learning the truth about the abused boy. Gabriel’s an intelligent man, but you may ask yourself why on earth such an obvious case would make him feel so overwhelmingly emotional. The lack of credibility hurts the film, but Toni Collette’s performance as the boy’s caretaker compensates a bit.
2006-U.S. 81 min. Color. Directed by Patrick Stettner. Cast: Robin Williams (Gabriel Noone), Toni Collette (Donna Logand), Bobby Cannavale (Jess), Rory Culkin, Joe Morton, John Cullum… Sandra Oh.
