The real deal, Mr. Van Praagh himself, can be seen in a quick cameo as the church organ player.
3 hours of fine film. Nice job.
I'm a big Ted Danson fan myself and I agree that he did a great job on the part of James Praagh, but he doesn't remotely look anything like him. But be that as it may, the whole 3 hours is indeed worthwhile and a keeper besides. I just hope one day I can get a copy; as always I'm watching the prices flex. Hopefully soon, they'll be to my liking.
Happy movie watching.
Just as he tries to quit, everyone presses him to go on to help solve a 30 year old murder with really spooky consequences. Is he the victim, the innocent bystander or maybe the perpetrator? Will the case get solved?
The film starts out very slow paced, for a while you think you may be watching a religious documentary. It seems to deviate this way and that off course. Then in the second half the pace picks up and you get absorbed and intrigued as it gets spookier and spookier. By the end you find that the film did not deviate and every word, every gesture forms a tapestry to review an overall picture.
A surprising plus is the quality of acting. I was especially surprised at Queen Latifah's port rail of cancer patient Midge Harmon
(You have to want to hear from them. Not all can break thru to the living. But some do.)
My elder has recently joined my siblings now, after a miserable ending.
There really is little that others can do but token gestures like a note, a text, something with no relation to loss is fine. Remembering a loved one- priceless.
Of course most of this is best offeredafter the weeks of shock and ceremonies. Unless you already are vrry close.
Ok, this movie does help outside skeptics of the honest, true stories ;f those who see people, feel their experience, and can shatr it w;th survorors. In this spellbinding, mystery here, law enforcement has been contacted and in other times law enforcement contacted Van Prague.
Skeptics wont find this too outrageous. Those who ache long after loss, will cry if they watch this alone, and are safe. I learned a bit t;o late that one should never supress tears. I got very deathly ill trying to carry on, hold the course and all that. Yes sometimes in public one carefully/dicretely wipes their eyes + supresses. I cried thru this movie at times when it had zero empathy for the actor that affected me. But this movie goes way into your private, personal loss/es and circumstances.
I think James Van Prague is our best living psychic. He does not volunteer, he does not have answwrs to everything, but his manner of revealing the bi,s and pieces, not to mention our most troubling concerns over our loss and the lost, really take some fear away.Read more ›
The movie begins with young James, seeing people and seeing things happen through dimentional portals, but whenever he tries to tell someone, it cause chaos, because they cannot see what James sees. To make matters worse, he is in Catholic school, so it only convinces teachers he is siding with the devil. So, James grows up taught to supress all of this supernatural stuff and not even talk about it. As a matter of fact, he wishes he could just turn it off---but it wasn't meant to be.
Fast-forward about 40 years or so, and Mom has a stroke. James hires a lady to work for him (Queen Latifa), and she begins talking about things her psychic told her, but James said he has had his fill of the supernatural. She gives him a Ouija Board, and encourages him. And James begins to see more folks from the other side. The next thing you know, he begins helping police detective Mary Steenburgen find missing children. Especially awesome, and the main theme of the movie, is the 7 young (deceased) boys, who take James on a journey toward solving their murders and helping them continue their path on the other side.
Walk with James as he experiences the double-edge sword -- the psychic gift and the pain of having and accepting the gift. For those of you who want to believe there is more to life than most people see and for those of you who believe the dead are closer than most folks think, this movie is very enjoyable.

I think this is Ten Danson's best role. It is a extremely emotional role and he played it fabulously. I would bet he was a bit tired after the film was completed. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Delight
