ProYou'll jump your way through it!!

ConsIt seems slow to start

I went to see "The Forgotten" because the actual film I wanted to see wasn't on, so to be honest, I went into the theatre with a completely open mind because I hadn't even seen it advertised anywhere.....and I wasn't really looking forward to it! However, after a wee bit of a slow start, it ended...

It is amazing how Brooklyn neighborhood looks Gothic, in the film “The Forgotten”, like we are not talking about that part of New York. Julianne Moore looks beautiful, in the environment of the fall shadings, when it comes to a set film design. This entirely new Julianne Moore star vehicle, "The...

Product Information : The Forgotten (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Until the very last moments of Joseph Ruben's spooky suspense thriller, viewers will question who's who in the us-versus-them conundrum. We have but one hint: 'It's not about the children'. But as local police, the feds, and other unknowns follow Telly (Julianne Moore), a young mother who refuses to forget the death of her 9-year-old son Sam, it's clear that the children are a hot-button issue. While it's fishy enough that nobody--not even Telly's own husband (Anthony Edwards)--seems to remember Sam, and the plane crash she claims killed him was never reported in the newspapers, it's a question of whose story to believe. And Moore, the frantic mother with madness flickering in her eyes, may simply be delusional, or so her shrink (Gary Sinise) says. But when she finds another grieving parent, Ash (Dominic West), whose daughter died in the same accident, she now has a partner in conspiracy theory. Together, Ash and Telly flee through the damp alleyways beneath the Brooklyn Bridge where steam escapes from potholes and police searchlights penetrate the gothic fog. Somebody knows something about the children, and 'they' want Ash and Telly to forget. THE FORGOTTEN springs into an action-adventure race for the truth, with surprising special effects, exciting jolts, and bird's-eye camera shots on ominous geometric patterns in the urban landscape keeping this mystery in fifth gear.
