The Sensation of Sight on IMDb
A fusion of dream/reality, this off-beat drama about a man's search for meaning amidst the ache of despair chronicles Finn, a middle-aged English teacher, as he enters a mid-life crisis impelled by a recent tragedy. As he sets afoot selling encyclopedias to the town locals, encounters ensue and sales are made, but Finn's anxieties begin to consume him as he finds himself pursued by an unrelenting ghost. Circling through sleepless nights and desperate days, this story intertwines lives of loneliness and disconnection, fatefully leading Finn toward an unexpected and sublime awakening. "This script was most definitely one of those that one picks up and puts in your pocket, takes home, runs it under the faucet, and puts on the window sill in the sun and watch it catch the light. Any light. Because it had so many facets to catch the light: whimsy, compassion and forgiveness for all the characters, a wonderful balance of all the story lines, both a poetical lilt and a very grounded insight, and most of all a gentleness and delight… The ensemble work in this film is a testament of the magic that can happen when a group of brave and trusting people all convene for the same reason. In this case, Aaron Wiederspahn's vision. It's hard to adequately describe this film, to put it into a simple sound bite that could possibly capture everything about the realization of this story. I love that it is about very real human conditions, presented patiently, gently, smilingly, with no judgment. It's affirmative and hopeful. What could be better? And it introduces several actors and a director to be watched, who herein prove to be deft and beautiful messengers." --David Strathairn Actor, from his interview with The Warren Report
