Drama
He traveled to Earth faster than the speed of light to study life in its early stages of evolution. Or did he? He can see ultraviolet light. Or can he? He writes in hieroglyphics. Or does he? He is a knocker at a slaughterhouse in a remote New Mexico town. Or is he? He witnessed the horrific murder of his wife and daughter. Or did he? Prot (Kevin Spacey) is a 337-year old alien from the planet K-PAX, which lies 1,000 light years away in the constellation Lyra with its seven purple moons and two suns. Or is he a savant suffering from extreme delusions that were caused by a traumatic past? Director Iain Softley explores the loaded issues of faith versus science and reality versus apparition in this highly crafted adaptation of Gene Brewer's novel. It will stir a thought-provoking discussion during the car ride home.
Director: Iain Softley
