“The Forgotten” is a movie about a mother named Telly Paretta, whose son Sam dies in a plane crash on school field trip. The movie starts off 14 months after her son’s plane crash has happened. Telly starts off by going to counseling and then one day her psychologist tells her that Sam was just a figment of her imagination. She tries to show existing photos and videos of her son Sam but they are all gone and erased. Then she meets Ash Correll, who was the father of one the girls who died in the same plane crash. He couldn’t remember a thing about his daughter Lauren at all. Telly goes into his office and begins to rip off back the wallpaper, which had been where Lauren's room used to be.
Telly manages to remind Ash about Lauren and then they finally realize that their kids aren't dead. They find out that aliens are conducting an experiment on them to find out about mother-child bonding and whether it is possible for a mother forget about her child. Ash and Telly go on a quest to find their kids and along the way, Telly finds out that her husband has forgotten. I really liked this movie and I do tend to watch this type of movie all the time. This movie is fun to watch and always keeps the audience wondering if her son Sam ever existed
The movie Forgotten fits into the theme of the class because this movie deals with the erasing of the mind. The key part of the movie is the bond between a mother and her son that allow her to remember about her son. This movie relate to the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind because during the movie after a bad break up, one of the main characters Clementine decided to undergo a surgery that erased her memory of her relationship with Joel. Both of these movies are about the erasing of the mind. When watching Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in class I automatically thought of The Forgotten. I would recommend watching this movie because it’s a really thriller. I have watched it a number of times. It always keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.
