This film zeroes in on a parent's love for her child and how she will do anything for that child. There is a mysterious force behind all this, but those looking for big special effects and loud noises are looking in the wrong place. This is an intimate movie about individuals fighting something much larger and more powerful.
The title of the movie is "The Forgotten," but I watched this movie several years ago and recently went back and watched it again because I could not forget it.
The movie has a good start questioning Telly's sanity. For instance she opens up a photo albums of her son but there are no pictures in it. She tries to play video tapes of him, but they’re blank. She feels like she’s losing her mind.
The twist is revealed when she finds another man in her exact same position named Ash (Dominic West). He had a daughter but can’t remember her. Telly does though and tries to help him remember her. That brings in government agents and the twist in the film which won’t be revealed.
The movie was definitely an exciting thriller with a twist that could not be foreseen.

The story is an interesting one and the character she portrayed was multi layered and in fact the whole cast did very well in a well crafted story. Nicely filmed and the sets were good as well.
Great all round movie which I would be happy to see again and now that it is I will.
This is the situation that Telly Paretta finds herself in. She is tormented by the memory of her 8 year old son Sam's death in a plane crash. While trying to work through her grief she is informed by the psychiatrist that she is suffering from delusions and that her son never existed. Telly knows this is not true and sets out to seek the truth - which is certainly more that she expected.
An interesting film with thought provoking notions?
