Former psychic George Lonegan (Matt Damon) is trying to create a normal life for himself, but doesn’t realize what part his gift might play in other people’s lives… or his own. The focus lies on three characters; the psychic, a French journalist (Cécile De France) who survived a tsunami and an English boy (Frankie McLaren) whose twin brother died in an accident. Two of them are searchers, trying to connect with the afterlife, one of them desperately wants to close the door on it. A moody, certainly relevant but not entirely satisfactory drama, with a few good performances and a fiercely effective tsunami sequence.
