Moore/West/Sinise/Edwards ~ Forgotten

Amazon.ca

With a plot that might've been lifted from The X-Files, nothing is quite what it seems in The Forgotten, a psychological conspiracy thriller with Julianne Moore doing fine work as a grieving mother whose nine-year-old son was killed in a plane crash. At least, that's what she's been led to believe, but when even her husband (Anthony Edwards) tries to convince her that she's delusional and never had a child, things start to get very spooky indeed. Dominic West (from HBO's superb series The Wire) plays a similarly traumatized father, and when they witness some very strange events--and a mysterious man (Linus Roache) who might be indestructible--this glorified B-movie potboiler directed by Joseph Ruben (best known for Dreamscape and The Stepfather) turns into a preposterous but entertaining trip into The Twilight Zone territory. Featuring Alfre Woodard as an intuitive New York detective and Gary Sinise as a seemingly sympathetic psychiatrist, The Forgotten offers adequate shocks and an intriguing, otherworldly study of tenacious parental instinct. It deserved its mixed reviews, but it's a fun spook-fest for rainy-day viewing. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Synopsis from ALLMOVIE Feb. 24 2007
Format:DVD
A grieving woman must make a journey into her past in this psychological thriller. Telly Paretta (Julianne Moore) is a mother who is struggling to put her life back together after the unexpected death of her eight-year-old son. Telly begins seeing a therapist (Gary Sinise) who offers a startling diagnosis -- that her son never really existed, and all her memories of the child are products of her imagination. When Telly meets a man with a strangely similar story to tell about his lost child (Dominic West), she becomes convinced that her doctor is wrong, and sets out to prove the existence of her child -- and that she isn't insane. The Forgotten also features Alfre Woodard and Anthony Edwards. An alternate ending exists to this film, which has been released on DVD and purportedly does a great deal to compensate for the story's weaknesses.

Julianne Moore never let's you down, I hate movies with children disappearing and dying but this was not what I expected

5.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing film that didn't let me down at all July 10 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Ever since I saw the first trailer, I was fascinated by the premise of this movie - the memory of a dead child being erased from the minds of everyone but his mother - and wondered just how a story like that could possibly end. Having read some of the reviews, my expectations were a little bit lowered as I finally got the chance to view The Forgotten. It turns out that I need not have lowered my expectations at all because I loved this movie. I honestly can't see why so many people were disappointed with it. I had no preconceived notions of the ending, and I must say the conclusion not only made sense, it felt right to me. I'm not saying that the whole explanation behind everything doesn't have a few weak spots, but it certainly works for me. And the special effects - Wow! I wasn't really looking for any blow-you-away effects, and a couple of them really did a number on me - especially that first one. I didn't even see it coming. I wouldn't say I jumped, exactly, but there was definitely a twitch involved with the experience.

When you get right down to it, The Forgotten is really about a mother's love - probably the strongest force in the universe - and I think there is really something poignant and life-affirming in my reaction to what I saw here. Julianne Moore really is a great actress; she is definitely the rock upon which this story is built. Her character, Telly Paretta, loses everything - first her son in a tragic plane crash, and then what is left of her life as everyone around her forgets the son she is still grieving for. Every piece of evidence for young Sam's existence disappears - photos, scrapbooks, etc.; her husband insists that they never had a child; and her psychiatrist, Dr.
