    Synopsis


    The Gift
    Supernatural horror meets character drama in this Sam Raimi-directed thriller. Set in Georgia, the film concerns a widowed mother named Annie (Cate Blanchett) who is blessed with the ability to have psychic visions. When Annie is asked to use her powers to investigate the murder of a rich society girl (Katie Holmes) who was engaged to a local high school principal (Greg Kinnear), she finds her "gift" is as destructive as it is helpful. Many of the townspeople have mixed regard for Annie's abilities, including an abusive husband (Keanu Reeves) and his brutalized wife (Hilary Swank) (the former threatens Annie and her children with taunts that she is a devil) as well as a deeply troubled auto mechanic (Giovanni Ribisi) who may hold a key to the events in question. The Georgia residents soon find themselves all suspects in the investigation, and Annie is forced to confront past demons while still trying to help solve the mystery. The Gift was co-written by Billy Bob Thornton, who appeared in another of Raimi's thrillers, A Simple Plan. ~ Jason Clark, Rovi

      Underappreciated

      A host of A-list actors show their chops in this dark, supernatural murder mystery. Cate Blanchett and Giovanni Ribisi are amazing and Keanu Reeves suprises as a redneck wife beater. This movie has a good mystery core and steps up the anticipation with supernatural elements. The ending, which some might see as breaking the suspension of disbelief doesn't bother me. I get caught up in the characters and the freedom that one finally experiences. The acting is outstanding in this and sweeps you along. The soundtrack (movie score, not the country music soundtrack) uses a violin to add a haunting and touching aspect to many scenes, especially the coda. It just might bring a tear to your eye. A nice gem for a cold Autumn night.
