Plot summary

(6 votes)

A young widow, Anna, is finally ready to move on from her sudden husband's death ten years earlier. She agrees to marry Joseph, the man that has courted her for the past three years. At her engagement party a 10-year-old boy crashes the party. He claims that he is Anna's husband in carnate and tells her not to marry Joseph and that he still loves her. Against her family and friend's wishes she drawn to the boy and plays with the thought that this boy, Sean, is really her husband.

Continuity mistake: In the bedroom scene where Joseph discusses the boy's letter with Anna, we see Anna putting on her earrings, interestingly enough, her earrings change in each shot. First we see her putting on her 'left' earring while she is still standing by the bureau, then she sits down on the bed and puts on her 'left' earring again, then she stands up - and in the next shot we see her at the buffet where she is suddenly already wearing her 'right' earring, but miraculously missing her 'left' earring. (00:22:00 - 00:23:25)

Anna: You certainly had me fooled. I thought you were my dead husband... but you're just a little boy in my bathtub.

Trivia: During the controversial bathtub scene, Cameron Bright was never naked and he and Nicole Kidman were never even in the same room during the filming of the bath scene, apart from one camera shot, and when this shot happened both actors wore special clothes that were not visible to the camera.

Question: Does Sean really possess the spirit of Anna's dead husband, or does the little boy just read the letters he finds buried in the woods, become obsessed with Anna and pretend to be the reincarnation of her husband?

Answer: I would say that he was "in love" with her before reading the letters. Once he read them, he kinda became convinced that he was the reincarnated spirit of her husband. He clearly is not, since the original Sean was not really in love with her.
