Guest Review by my mom:
Although I was intrigued by Charlie's ability to stay in touch with his deceased brother, I thought it could have moved along more quickly, not the plot, which I thought was quite clever, but the way it was played out. I did, however, appreciate the theme of undying brotherly love and the dimensional, other-worldly feel to the story. Worth watching, this movie provokes thoughts about our ability to love unconditionally and about life after death.
