Honestly, beforehand, I had never heard of this flick but since I have a weak spot for William Hurt (one of the most underrated actors, in my opinion), I thought I should check it out anyway. It features also the first starring part by Alexis Bledel (from 'Gilmore Girls'). Eventually, after watching it, I can understand why it is such an obscure and forgotten movie. Indeed, they tried to mix some romance with some paranormal elements but the end result was rather disappointing. When you think about it, it does actually resemble 'Twilight' in some ways(love + imortality + teen anxiety). Still, it was not completely awful. Indeed, there was a pretty good cast (Alexis Bledel, William Hurt, Sissy Spacek, Ben Kingsley, Amy Irving) and they delivered some decent performances but the story was just not well written. Above all, I was rather bored by the whole thing and I didn't care about the plot and the characters involved. To conclude, I didn't really like it and it is not really worth a look, even if you like the genre.
