The Line Between This World and the Next is About to Be Crossed.
A grief counselor working with a group of plane-crash survivors finds herself at the root of a mystery when her clients begin to disappear.

"Intelligent supernatural drama.  Chicago Reader
"...[an] ambitiously conceived mystery drama with conspiracy theories, a central romance and supernatural elements.  Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile

Editor's Note
Anne Hathaway stars in this psychological thriller as Claire Summers, a driven young psychiatrist who consumes herself in work at the expense of her social life. Following a plane crash, Claire is called upon to counsel the few survivors. These men and women are understandably traumatized, showing signs of post traumatic stress syndrome, shock, and in the case of passenger Eric (Patrick Wilson), a state of euphoria. Clair leads a therapy group attended by every passenger except Eric, who will agree to see Claire only on a casual, one-on-one basis on the understanding that he is not a "patient" but a friend. Claire agrees to this reluctantly with the hope that this arrangement will help her reach Eric and get him to open up about his experience. As Claire hears contradictory accounts of the crash from each survivor, she starts to suspect foul play on the part of the airline. Meanwhile, she struggles to keep her ever-growing relationship with Eric professional.

PASSENGERS is a low-key thriller filled with slow-paced mystery. Subtle twists and turns keep the plot moving as an experienced cast of familiar faces bring the script to life. Other names include Clea Duvall as a group therapy member, and Dianne Wiest as Claire's nosy neighbor. While there are points throughout where viewers may be slightly confused, director Rodrigo Garcia pulls it together and makes it all pay off in the end. Several low-lit sequences create a gloomy atmosphere, which speaks to both the heavy subject matter and to the lonely isolation that defines Claire's world.

Expert Review Passengers - DVD Review
By: Emily McDonald Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 5/13/2009 2:24 AM
The tag line for Passengers blares "The line between this world and the next is about to be crossed," boldly over the cover of the DVD box. What could this possibly mean? What does the "next" world have to do with a bunch of passengers on a crashing plane? The cover also features white, loosely-visible people filling up the space behind a freaked out looking Patrick Wilson. Well, put the tagline and the invisi-people together and you probably have the answer to the equation that is Passengers. If you either can't figure it out or are choosing to remain belligerently naive then go ahead and either read on, or watch the film and be mildly shocked by the ending. ...read the full review

Variety
"A muted, eerie but ultimately soothing blend of elements from THE SIXTH SENSE and TV's LOST....PASSENGERS follows a handful of plane-crash survivors still coming to terms with their experience." 10/24/2008

Jam! Movies 5 of 10
The movie, Passengers, is a psychological thriller/romance combo about the survivors of an airplane crash, with Hathaway starring as the grief counsellor who is supposed to help. Her co-stars are Patrick Wilson (Little Children), a survivor who is determined to bury his fear and other crash-related emotions; Dianne Wiest, who plays Hathaway's neighbour; and David Morse, who has a role as an airline employee...Hathaway's patients have conflicting memories of what happened on board the doomed aircraft...The problem is the general filler and tedious trailing-around-doing-nothing undertaken by the actors, who have nothing to do in the 80 minutes between the opening plane crash and the final big reveal -- the poor sods...Anne Hathaway and Patrick Wilson both put in reasonable enough performances, but there's not much one can do with a film this clumsy. It's amateurish in execution. It's bad storytelling...Hathaway seems to be fighting to control her own natural comedic ability in this role. Maybe everyone involved with Passengers just hopes it will vanish quickly from theatres before it sullies Hathaway's current triumph in the film Rachel Getting Married...The actress is said to be a dead cert for a best-actress Oscar nomination for her work in Rachel Getting Married, so maybe Passengers is the dream-killer for her that Norbit was for Eddie Murphy -- the film that allegedly robbed him of an Academy Award for Dreamgirls. Better if no one sees it...That's all speculation of course. What's more, it's speculation that assumes thought on the part of someone in Hollywood, so -- nah...Passengers is just a lousy movie, but you're not supposed to find that out until after you've paid for an admission ticket. That sounds closer to the truth. - Liz Braun
