Deep South mystery starring Cate Blanchett as a widow with
psychic abilities who holds the key to a murder investigation, but the local folks cause mischief.
Blanchett's performance lend credibility to this otherwise
ridiculous hokum which throws in far too many characters simply for the hell of it. Katie Holmes, as the victim, tries to shed her wholesome image by shedding her clothes, but is woefully
miscast for the role, with a diabolical Southern Belle accent.
It's also quite ironic that, for a film about a main
character with the gift of clairvoyance, the majority of an audience can anticipate what will happen long before she does.
