What is reality? Do we see with our eyes or our brains? Can we envision the future much the same way we remember the past? Our predecessors thought the world was flat. Is much of what we think we know also wrong? Are we all gods? This bubbly, repetitive and terminally cheesy exploration of quantum physics nearly topples into the realm of a New Age infomercial as it addresses these and other questions in both documentary and fictional narrative form and in layman’s terms. Animation, special digital effects and a small army of talking heads (scientists, mystics and scholars) are integrated into a rubbery story in which Marlee Matlin (Children of a Lesser God
and Hear No Evil
) stars as a depressed, divorced photographer who is urged to create her own new reality in a film that some audiences will find transcendental and others will find merely trendy.
