Director: Clint Eastwood. Cast: Matt Damon, Cécile De France, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jay Mohr, Richard Kind. 129 min. Rated PG-13. Drama/Fantasy.
I struggled quite a bit before scoring this film from one of the most accomplished directors alive, but Eastwood seriously missed here. The three parellel stories of a tsunami survivor, a psychic, and the twin brother of a recently died child make a fabricated connection at the end of a 2-hour long wait, that just doesn't fly. After Invictus and this, apparently Eastwood is finding some true acting skills in Damon, so I'll look forward to another of their collaborations; but as in the case of Changeling, I kept scratching my head at why Eastwood even made this.
