The movie is painfully slow in getting to the point, and the endless flashbacks to the little girl in the snow are never fully explained.
On the up side, however, are the dynamic performances of Katie Holmes and Benjamin Bratt. Holmes milks everything out of her girl next door, yet sexy, looks, and is especially good in the interview sequence, where she seems totally in control of things. Bratt parlays his smoldering macho into a genuinely caring, if blind, detective. In a smaller role as Holmes' psychiatrist, Tony Goldwyn gives off a smug lechery.
Gagham obviously focused on making this a "kid accessible" film, but insults their intelligence in not really supplying any real suspense or surprise. I could see the ending coming within the first twenty minutes.
Stylish, yet stifling.
Katie Holmes plays Katie Burke, intelligent (and a little bit icy) student preparing for the unnerving job interview with the first-rate company. But what is more unnerving for her is the loss of her boyfriend Embry (Charlie Hunnham, "Nicholas Nickleby), who has been missing for the last two years, and nobody knows whether he is dead or alive.
Before her, a handsome police detective (Benjamin Bratt) appears, who is trying to locate Embry. While trying to forget all about her past, and seeing the possibility of new love in front of her, Katie still cannot help daydreaming about her lost love. And it seems Embry also wants to come back since she keeps on 'seeing' him on campus or in her room. But is she just dreaming, or what?
The premise is interesting, but the result is not. We have little to find or detect from the beginning, and on the way the film starts to act as if it's not a thriller. Without occasional episodes (like the 'eyes' staring Katie), you forget this is supposed to be a thriller. I actually began to think that I was mistaken in supposing it's a thriller. It is. The thing is, it is done with a too thin material to make a chilling thriller.
The chacaters are interesting, all of them being the ones you know you see around you. Melanie Lynskey and Zooey Deschanel give us precious support, but their characters have nothing to do with the central plot.Read more ›

I'm often on the lookout for independent films but this movie was just plain boring. The best character was the one who died, the young college boy with a vision. Read morePublished on May 28 2004
I never, ever thought I'd say it...but Katie Holmes on screen about 98% of the time just didn't do enough to make this movie worth it. Decent premise, I suppose. Read morePublished on May 25 2004 by Conway Stern
this one makes your blood thin. I watched this expecting a lot of twists but it didnt, only the end. Katie Holmes is beautiful as always but we dont feel for her character. Read morePublished on May 1 2004 by Michael Bolts
