Movie Reviews

Patrick Stewart makes a great ghost!
The Best | Utah, USA | 01/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is extremly well done. the scenery shots are magnificent. The story is a wonderful variation on several old ghost/haunting stories combined with a new twist. Great family film."
Wonderfully entertaining
Lisa Kleypas | Texas City, TX United States | 03/31/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Patrick Stewart's portrayal of the ghost was delightful and poignant and he wove into his role some Shakespeare which added depth. Neve Campbell was also exceptional as the young child who believed and shed her tears for the ghost's release."
Leigh Ann Hussey | SF Bay Area, CA | 01/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Patrick Stewart does his usual stellar job of taking what could otherwise be an indifferent film, with really kindof a sappy script, and turning it into pure art. The breadth and depth of his talent amazes me ceaselessly, and in this vehicle he travels easily from the roar you could hear in the nosebleed seats at the back of the theatre, to moments of incredible intensity and intimacy. It's a sweet story, once you get past the almost inevitable Hallmark family interaction formulae; truth be told, I found myself moved nearly to tears more than once, and all because of Patrick Stewart's performance.See this movie if for no other reason; it's reason enough."
Witty, charming
