    Interesting story line but extremely slow and boring. Also, it has a scene where a ten year old boy gets into the tub with Nicole Kidman and it is clearly implied that they have sex (the kid is supposedly her re-incarnated husband).

    Would not at all recommend this movie to anybody. What a waste of money!

    No problem! I think that you, like I did, would find many things disturbing about the movie.

    Nothing if that is what you want to see. Not everybody wants to see movies that portray events they would find disturbing or troubling.

    Correct?

    Alias andLost are about all I can handle. Have you noticed that Nicole Kidman has gotten into some weird stuff in the past few years, especially since her divorce?

    Yes. I am convinced that her finding out Tom was gay (I know, he hasn't admitted it, but I am sure that he is) has something to do with it. That movie they made together..... what was it called...... (had to google) "Eyes Wide Shut" was about as strange/stupid a movie I have ever seen. I think Tom is into some really weird stuff myself. All conjecture sure, but something about him just doesn't seem right.

    Absolutely, but if you don't want to see movies that portray events that are disturbing or troubling, why would you rent Birth? It's very clearly going to be disturbing.

    Well, first off, I didn't rent it. Secondly, I never expected them to imply that the 10 year old and the lady were going to have sex. On the cover it just said, "a strange boy claims to be Anna's reincarnated husband". The story was interesting, but the movie was slow and at times, just plain boring. The only thing I really found disturbing was the scene where the 10 y/o walks into the bathroom when Anna (Nicole) is in the tub and he undresses and gets in with her. I thought that was a bit much.

    Why are you trying to start a debate about something that doesn't need to be debated? I know a bit about Mom so I know she wouldn't like the movie.

    Is that okay with you or do I need to get some kind of permission to post my opinion on here?

    Scientology at it's best. I'm so glad to hear someone else say this about Mr. Cruise. I keep saying it & people look at me like I've got a third eyeball.
    And speaking of not admitting it......Mm refers to Gere as "gerbil boy"for a particular reason ........ 'google that'.
