      Knowing is a science fiction movie starring Nicholas Cage as a young single parent. His name is John Koestler. His son Caleb goes to elementary school and participates in digging up a time capsule that was buried many years before. Each child gets one of the pictures drawn by a student who was in the class that originally buried the time capsule. Most of the pictures feature inventions that were around in the 50s or things the children enjoyed doing, but the paper Caleb gets has numbers on it. Although John thinks nothing of it at first, he later notices a correlation between the

      numbers on the page and disasters that have happened around the world. It seems that the code predicts man-made and natural disasters, stating the year, day, location, and time they would occur, as well as how many people were killed. John races around the country, trying to save the lives of people caught up in the disasters that the code predicts. His efforts meet with mixed success.

      When John realizes that the code, which has matched up exactly with fifty years worth of tragedies, also predicts the imminent end of the world, he goes on a quest to find out about the child who ...

      • wrote the numbers down and unravel the mystery, all the time fearing that time is running out.

        He runs into a woman (Diana, played by Rose Byrne) who is the daughter of the child who wrote the code. Her mother had gone crazy; Diana has long ago dismissed her as mentally ill. Diana herself has a young daughter. They become embroiled in the mystery of the code. In the meantime, strangers are stalking the four people, and show much interest in the two children. Who these strangers are, and whether John and Diana can save the world, is revealed later in the movie.

        One thing

        I liked about Knowing was its unexpected ending. The ending was not a happy one, but it did convey hope. The movie had a considerable emotional impact on me, and I felt shaken when it was over, but also oddly peaceful. The movie touches upon the deeper issues of faith and what it is that brings peace to people. I liked Knowing because it was suspenseful and also made me think about deeper issues, such as what I would do if I knew I was living my last day on earth. It is a movie that is entertaining but, at the same time, really makes you think.
