When Jessica King goes missing, all eyes turn to Annabelle Wilson. Not as a murder suspect, but as a clairvoyant. Many of the towns folk go to Annabelle for help, and Jessica's fiancée, Wayne Collins, turns to Annabelle for possible guidance. Annabelle feels that she can't help, but this doesn't stop her from constantly getting visions of Jessica's fate. Written by
The cards Annie Wilson uses to perform her "readings" are actually Zener Cards, which are used to perform ESP tests. The cards are not known for their fortune-telling abilities, however, this is not necessarily a mistake. Fortune tellers can use a variety of cards from tarot decks to ordinary poker cards to give readings. All that truly matters is that the four elements of nature (fire, water, earth, and air) are represented in some form. Annie would still be able to deliver readings with them as long as she knew which symbols represented which element. See more »
When Annie gives a reading for Kenneth King (Jessica's father) her watch is on the table as usual. In one shot the watch is on his arm but soon after is back on the table. See more »
The Gift is a film about sex and murder in a small town. Sam Raimi
camera angles and visual flair are beautiful. The Gift makes up for his
previous flop For Love Of The Game. Cate Blanchett is great in the lead
role as are Keanu Reeves, Hilary Swank and Katie Holmes who has a greta
nude scene. Rent this film for a great night of chills and a film that
will keep you guessing.
