Format: DVD
A powerful magical realism exploration of the power of healing. Chris Thornton wrote an amazing story here! While the plot centers on a paraplegic struggling with his disability, the themes are universal. After his accident, Dwyer faces alienation, limitations, fear and anger as he watches his life slide into desperation. After discovering he has the power to heal, he's exploited by those he once relied on. In an attempt to regain what he's lost, he sells his soul and his gift to rock stardom. In the end, he learns healing is not about walking again, but is instead a complicated internal process... a very intense journey that leaves you thinking...

On a side note... as a paraplegic, I get sick of able-bodied actors playing disabled roles. Thank you Chris!

This movie is gritty and harsh and yet also beautiful. It explores fascinating themes about how grace might work and the ways that human beings try to manipulate and buy one another. Great performances from some wonderful actors. I'm new to Christopher Thornton, but was so impressed that I'll have to look at what else he's been in. It is absolutely a movie worth watching.

I live in a rural area that has no big-box stores or automated DVD machines.

The small retail store chains that service the area are decidely second-tier and sell used repacked DVDs from rental shops. There are NO DVD cases and NO descriptions of the films. I often take a chance for the few dollars Involved.

That's how I got this film. I simply popped it in to see what it was.

WOW!

A thoughtful moral dillema where a person gains an unbidden and unique power to change others' lives profoundly...but not his own. And then there are the others who want to utilize that power for their own interests. The rest would be a spoiler.

Just a sweet, sweet film acted with real care.

And I was blown away with the DVD "added feature" that reveals the writer/actor was not playing the part of a guy forever to be in a wheelchair. He WAS a guy forever to be in a wheelchair.

There are certain themes in the film that resonate with Christians, but also resonate with other belief (and nonbelief) systems.

I love the line about sometimes things happen to you when G-d is trying to talk to you.

Foul-language note: This takes place largely on skid row and in hard-rock music environments. The F word is used a lot.

"Listen please, you don't know what you did, you got the healing touch." After being shown the power of faith healing, Delicious decides to use what he has learned to become a world famous DJ. When fate steps in and allows him to heal everyone's problems but his own he must decide if he will use his gift for someone else. This is not a bad movie at all. Without being in your face with it, this is a fairly religious movie. This also presents a great question. If you had the power to help everyone but yourself could you do it or would you be to jealous? Great acting by everyone makes this an enjoyable movie to watch. Orlando Bloom is great in a wide departure from what he usually does. The fact that the lead actor is actually paralized gives his performance a dimension that would be lacking if the actor was only pretending. This is a pretty slow moving movie, but very much worth watching. Overall, a very good movie filled with great acting. This is another movie you must be in the mood for though. I liked it. I give it a B-.

Would I watch again? - I don't think I would

I saw this movie and got it only because I am a huge Mark Ruffalo fan and I was curious to see his directorial debut. It was fantastic and I really liked the spiritual storyline. Some of the performances were a bit over the top, but I didn't lose interest and most of the characters were very believable. The ending gave me chills and was a bit of a twist but not entirely unpredictable. A really great first effort in directing by an actor I absolutely love to watch in performance.

A friend recommended this and I went into the film with no knowledge of it at all. I came away incredibly impressed. Like the magical realism of authors such as Gabriel García Márquez, Sympathy takes us on a mystical journey of near-destruction and ultimate redemption. Dean O'Dwyer, living on skid row destitute and desperate, wakes up one day to discover he has the ability to heal. When he also discovers he cannot heal his own spinal cord injury, he decides instead to cash in. His journey is troubling, tragic, and harsh as he learns what it really means to heal. One of the most powerful aspects of this film is actor Christopher Thornton. A gifted actor, he also wrote the script for this film. It was refreshing to see a disabled actor playing the role of a disabled character. This is rare in Hollywood and Thornton's writing and acting brought a necessary realism to the film. I loved it!

I think the movie strayed quite a bit from the true story but can't say for sure. Too much of the F word for me... like every other breath and it is rather vile how this healing gift was supposedly given to someone who wasn't even a believer and then .... you might say prostitued for money... yet in the end I guess he got his attitude right anyway. Kind of wierd.
