Twelve-year-old James Neubauer (Trevor Morgan) is spending the summer in Maine. He's emotionally estranged from his father (Ray Liotta), resentful of his stepmother (Catherine McCormack), and haunted by the events surrounding his mother's death. James's summer takes a turn when he crashes through a fence owned by the local recluse, Maddy (Vanessa Redgrave). Reluctantly enlisted to repair the damage, he's at first put off by Maddy's personality and candor, but they eventually form a bond.

    With its mystical mumbo jumbo and even a helpful beam of celestial light in one scene, A Rumor of Angels is a kind of cinematic comfort food for an undemanding audience. show more
