The Forgotten : The Movie

This is a great film for a sequel.  There are many loose ends and many unanswered questions. The movie centers around a mother who lost a son, or at least she was led to believe her son was killed in a plane crash.    BestSyndicaton.com

Amazon.com Review
With a plot that might've been lifted from The X-Files, nothing is quite what it seems in The Forgotten, a psychological conspiracy thriller with Julianne Moore doing fine work as a grieving mother whose nine-year-old son was killed in a plane crash. At least, that's what she's been led to believe, but when even her husband (Anthony Edwards) tries to convince her that she's delusional and never had a child, things start to get very spooky indeed. Dominic West (from HBO's superb series The Wire) plays a similarly traumatized father, and when they witness some very strange events--and a mysterious man (Linus Roache) who might be indestructible--this glorified B-movie potboiler directed by Joseph Ruben (best known for Dreamscape and The Stepfather) turns into a preposterous but entertaining trip into The Twilight Zone territory. Featuring Alfre Woodard as an intuitive New York detective and Gary Sinise as a seemingly sympathetic psychiatrist, The Forgotten offers adequate shocks and an intriguing, otherworldly study of tenacious parental instinct. It deserved its mixed reviews, but it's a fun spook-fest for rainy-day viewing. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to the Theatrical Release edition.

Full Synopsis
A grieving woman must make a journey into her past in this psychological thriller. Telly Paretta (Julianne Moore) is a mother who is struggling to put her life back together after the unexpected death of her eight-year-old son. Telly begins seeing a therapist (Gary Sinise) who offers a startling diagnosis -- that her son never really existed, and all her memories of the child are products of her imagination. When Telly meets a man with a strangely similar story to tell about his lost child (Dominic West), she becomes convinced that her doctor is wrong, and sets out to prove the existence of her child -- and that she isn't insane. The Forgotten also feature Alfre Woodard and Anthony Edwards. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Julianne Moore
Name :Julianne Moore Birth Date December 3, 1961 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, USA

Birth Name : Julie Anne Smith

Height : 5' 5
Education : Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts (majored in Drama; graduated; BFA)
School of Fine Arts (graduated; BFA)
Nationality : American
Occupation : Actress
Claim to fame : Played dual role of Frannie and her look-alike half-sister Sabrina on as the World Turns (1985-1988

Julianne was born December 3, 1960, at Fort Brag in Fayetteville, North Carolina. She is the daughter of a military judge, her father, and psychiatric social worker mother. Julianne recalls, "In grade school, I was a complete geek. You know, there's always the kid who's too short, the kid who wears glasses, the kid who's not athletic. Well, I was all three." As an Army brat, Julianne moved constantly as a child, with twenty three homes before she settled in Boston. Julianne graduated from Boston University where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. After graduation, Julianne headed off to New York, where she appeared in a number of late-'80's off Broadway plays. She then branched out into television with a short term part on the soap opera "The Edge of Night" which lead to a 3 year stint on "As The World Turns", for which she earned a daytime Emmy. Julianne made her first leap to the big screen with 1990's "Tales from the Darkside: The Movie".

Moore's first minor coup on the small screen came in the form of a supporting role as Valerie Bertinelli's friend in the 1987 prime-time mini-series Judith Krantz's I'll Take Manhattan. A subsequent string of forgotten TV movies — Money, Power, Murder, The Last To Go, Cast a Deadly Spell, Lovecraft — certainly benefited from her striking presence, but they did little in return to boost her career. Moore's feature debut as the victim of a mummy in the deplorable Tales From the Darkside: The Movie (1990) also failed to raise her prominence in Hollywood, but she fared significantly better as the salon-coifed, outspoken real estate agent friend of Anabella Sciorra who meets a grisly greenhouse demise in the 1992 thriller The Hand That Rocks the Cradle. Things were looking up significantly the following year: she played a fleeting, but pivotal, role in the Harrison Ford-Tommy Lee Jones blockbuster The Fugitive; she shouldered the thankless burden of playing Willem Dafoe's wife in the execrable Body of Evidence; and she stole the show as the waitress girlfriend of Aidan Quinn in the endearing fable Benny & Joon. In Robert Altman's Short Cuts, Moore startled audiences with one of 1993's most talked-about scenes: in the role of Matthew Modine's artist-wife, she delivers a feisty monologue while standing before him — and us — in the nude from the waist down. She capped off the banner year by appearing opposite Al Pacino in a workshop production of Strindberg's The Father.

Dominic West
Dominic West (Ash Correll in "The Forgotten") has been seen on the big screen most recently in the feature "Mona Lisa Smile" opposite Julia Roberts and directed by Mike Newell. He played Fred Casely, the murdered lover of Roxie Hart in the Oscar®-winning film "Chicago." The native of Sheffield, England also stars in the widely praised HBO original series “The Wire” as homicide detective Jimmy McNulty. His feature film credits include "28 Days" opposite Sandra Bullock and directed by Betty Thomas, "Rock Star" opposite Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Aniston and directed by Stephen Herek, "Surviving Picasso" with Sir Anthony Hopkins and directed by James Ivory, "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" with Kevin Kline and Michelle Pfeiffer, directed by Michael Hoffman and "Diana and Me" with Toni Collette, directed by David Parker. West made his motion picture debut in 1992 in "Richard III" opposite Ian McKellan and directed by Richard Loncraine.

West’s passion for the theatre inspired him to return to the stage in 2001 to star in the hit Broadway revival of Nöel Coward’s “Design for Living” opposite Alan Cumming. 

His role as Sandra Bullock's egotistical, self-absorbed fiancé offering audiences a hilarious glimpse of the handsome actor's notable comic talents, actor Dominic West has since gone on to display his versatility in such notably diverse projects as the acclaimed HBO series The Wire and director Rob Marshall's hit musical Chicago. Born into a family of seven children in Sheffield, England, West's father was the owner of a plastics manufacturing plant and his mother a homemaker with a taste for the theater. At first employed in such unglamorous positions as that of a cattle herder in Argentina, it wasn't long before West enrolled in Dublin's Trinity College and graduated with a B.A. in English Literature. His love of acting propelled him next to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and West graduated from the prestigious school in 1995. Though he had previous acting experience in a few minor film roles, it was the late '90s that found West's career truly beginning to bloom. A small role in Spice World was followed by a notable performance in the British miniseries Out of Hours (1998), and after minor roles in A Midsummer Night's Dream and Star Wars: Episode 1 -- The Phantom Menace (both 1999), he got his big feature break with 28 Days Later. As the millennium turned, so did West's career; in 2001, he took to the screen with Mark Wahlberg in the musical drama Rock Star. Cast in the lead of HBO's The Wire shortly thereafter, the show debuted in 2002 to favorable critical reviews. Following a pair of memorable performances in Chicago and Mona Lisa Smile, West appeared in director Joseph Ruben's action thriller The Forgotten in 2004. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
