In the bayous near Savannah lives Annie, a widow with three young sons and a gift: she's clairvoyant, supporting her family by reading cards. Not long after she's menaced by Donnie Barksdale, the abusive husband of a client, the sultry daughter of a prominent citizen (and fiancée of the school principal) goes missing. Annie leads the police to the woman's watery grave, Donnie's pond. At the trial and after, Annie must sort through an attack on her credibility and her gift, knowledge of the dead woman's affairs, her own attraction to the principal, and a separate crisis brought on by the mental illness of one of her neighbors. The visions won't quit either: what if Donnie is innocent?

"Girl gets murdered in mysterious circumstances, blackmails, twists ensue. Hasn't this formula been used a little too much in the past? Excellent acting from all star cast though, especially from Cate Blanchett, Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes. I have to admit, I was really surprised to see Katie Holmes in such uh,'adult' role-Guess I was just too used to seeing her as teenager Joey from DC.
Overall, the film was way too predictable, it more felt like an usual weekly episode of CSI--But would be a decent way to kill time on a Friday evening."
