The Wait2013

  • 3.3
Who determines what is real? An enigmatic phone call from a psychic, catapults a family into a state of suspended belief while waiting for their recently deceased mother to be resurrected. One sister believes the claim, and the other staunchly opposes it until she encounters a chance at love, giving her hope that anything, even resurrection, is possible. A discordant struggle between sisters plays out in a world where the virtual and real often converge.

“In times of stress and grief, peoples’ minds can go into fail-safe mode and believe whatever they want. It's really about that suspended state when one experiences something traumatic, it kind of looms and time begins to operate differently.” - M. Blash

There comes a point in a chronic film fans career when movies like The Wait start to feel like it's been there, seen that. There are no glaring turnoffs, nor terrible acting (quietly loving Sevigny no matter what she does). Just a sense if having heard this story before, maybe it was dressed differently, maybe it danced to a jazz tune instead of The Cure's soundtrack with gentle piano liberally interspersed in the stunning Oregon panoramas. It does not help either, that the pace of this film is bordering on the pulse rate of poor Grandma. The Wait has an odd flavor, as if the beef tastes more like soy, but you just can't be sure. Even after 60 minutes of visual bites. Try it, you may like it. Or may not.

this is another depressing film I feel that a film either picks you up or lets you down with its storyline and follow up and this one has no concept presented to follow therefore it is a waste of time..!

Kind of nothing but I love Chloë so much and the ending sort of made me emotional so I guess it was okay.
