Sometime later, when Emily's condition seemingly improves, her father then decides to leave New York City, where they live, and relocate to a small upstate town. No sooner do they move there, they meet the real estate agent and the town's sheriff, both of whom seem a tad peculiar. Moreover, there appears to be something not quite right with the couple next door, especially the husband. When Emily starts talking about an ostensibly imaginary friend named Charlie, the viewer knows that something is afoot. When David develops a new friend of his own, Elizabeth (Elizabeth Shue), trouble lies ahead, as Emily exhibits bizarre behavior towards her, as well as towards Elizabeth's young niece who is trying to befriend her.
As Charlie appears to be becoming an ever present and ominous entity in their lives, and Emily's odd behavior continues unabated, David remains the most kind, concerned, and understanding of fathers. He contacts Emily's therapist Katherine, who is very concerned about the eccentric behavior Emily is exhibiting. Meanwhile, the male neighbor interjects himself into the picture in a seemingly ominous way.Read more ›
After the apparant suicide of his wife, David (Robert DeNiro) a phsycologist decides it best to move his daughter Emily (Dakota Fanning) out from their familiar New York City home to the country side feeling that the change of scenery will help his daughter adjust to life without her mother.
Into a few days, Emily developes a disturbing friendship with the unseen "Charlie" who David feels is an imaginary friend thought up by his daughter to place responsibility of his wife's death onto him, but not directly from Emily. Only, when David slides on his music to write in his journal about Emily's trauma, does Charlie and Emily begin to play extremely chilling games.
There are a bit too many characters thrown into the story to obviously keep you clueless, which is no surprise that these characters really do not weave with the story, they barely flow which makes their motives for potentially being "Charlie" pretty weak.
Over all, Dakota Fanning is completely creepy, but that doesn't keep the story from being dreadfully long to the point. I understand it's keeping with such slow paced psychological thrillers like The Shinning and Taxi Driver, but it turns out to be simply... long.
Perhaps there are just too many movies out there like this to be original. But as far as predictability goes, it's not that terrible of a movie. But it is, I'm afraid, a one time watcher.
