He believes he was abducted by aliens, and N. McCormick, a fellow player on Brian's childhood baseball team, may be the key as to exactly what happened that night.

Together, the two of them uncover the terrible truth of the scars they share.

    The bathroom scene near the end of the film is the most disturbing scene I've witnessed in a movie. It had me shaking all throughout. Amazing film, though - easily in my top 20.

    This trailer does the film no justice...

    Hmm, the UFO thing punches you in the face, if it comes to a theory what's the mystery about, especially seeing the others boy life. Might be wrong, but that would be than too much info in a trailer.
  • Kat Jay 2015-03-01 12:32:10
    Can anyone explain the scene where the boy's mother and sister saw the UFO too? I figured the twist out pretty early and was interested in how they would explain it but, they never did...

  • Aria Nugeraha 2015-01-23 17:07:57
    i didnt realize that after all these years i had spotted joseph gordon levitt early. not to mention trachtenberg. but in this movie it was really disturbing to imagine how his teacher harrasments had been intrepreted into dellusioning abduction. to say alien. what a wasted childhood he had. i mean, how mean the alien is. anyway it was kind of intense drama. very sad
