Quotes

Grace Batten: Are you a doctor?
Simon: I specialize in methods that conventional medicine ignores. What kind of methods? Many diseases can manifest through our environment. What we eat, how we live. And just as we may create our illness, our bodies can be healed.
Grace Batten: And that works on, uh... On sick people?
Simon: If they are pure of heart and mind, yes.

Can you hear it?
14 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Some people claim they can hear the Calling, like our main bad guy in this movie. While there are some shades and he does have a goal, most of the viewers will not root for him. Of course there is controversy with a theme like that, though I'm surprised that Ebert (movie critic) gave it one of four stars.

Just the acting alone should make you feel this deserves more. Even if you don't like Susan Sarandons character, the way she portrays her and plays her is just amazing. The supporting cast is great too, though it's not a "whoddunnit", but more a "whydunnit". Though the latter might be spoiled in most reviews of the movie. I won't do that here, though I know the "reason" will not be everyones cup of tea. You'll either be engaged with this or you won't
