Surprisingly effective thriller about a young man () who has never really got over his father’s dying when he was a child. He gets the chance of a lifetime when an odd miracle of northern lights and ‘the mother of all sunspots’ allows him to speak to his father () on an old radio thirty years into the past. Hoping to change history, Caviezel manages to provide information enough to prevent his father’s death, but now what havoc has he wreaked? It seems this change in history has allowed for a serial killer to continue a rampage of murders on a group of hospital nurses. What follows is (nearly) consistent, gripping and very moving. Caviezel and Quaid both give terrific performances.
