Knowing

{4.5/5} “Right now my scientific mind is telling me to have nothing more to do with this. And yours should, too.”

Knowing, released in 2009

Caleb receives an envelope from a time capsule at school — the capsule was buried 50 years ago. Unlike the other kids who get pictures Caleb’s page just has numbers on it. John, Caleb’s father, notices a seeming connection to 9/11 in one group of numbers and starts looking at the other numbers. He comes to believe that the child who wrote the numbers had the gift of prophecy — and is warning him about disasters yet to come.

When you watch this movie for the first time, there’s a startling change in the storyline at one point (kind of like Hancock). Although it’s a bit awkward, I didn’t really mind it.

It’s about family, and following a trail wherever it goes.

Stars Nicholas Cage and Rose Byrne. Directed by Alex Proyas (Dark City). The mysterious music is by Marco Beltrami.

This is the 2nd time I’ve seen it.
