We watched this film last night. It seemed appropriate, somehow, after writing about Crossing Over with John Edward. The misadventures of Sam, Molly and Oda Mae were a revelation to us 40-somethings when it came out. Love really is the connection to those on the other side.
Sam Wheat is a banker, Molly Jensen is an artist, and the two are madly in love. However, when Sam is murdered by friend and corrupt business partner Carl Bruner over a shady business deal, he is left to roam the Earth as a powerless spirit. When he learns of Carl’s betrayal, Sam must seek the help of psychic Oda Mae Brown to set things right and protect Molly from Carl and his goons.Storyline
Even re-watching this trailer sends shivers up my spine.
My title today is the echo of significance that comes when one address is repeated several times in the film. We need a different perspective if our prospects are to improve in this place. But all we have is the 4th Dimension, Time.
Some Random Quotes
