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.|
"...[an] ambitiously conceived mystery drama with conspiracy theories, a central romance and supernatural elements. Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
Editor's NoteAnne 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.
Passengers - DVD Review

|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|
