Blue walls, blue roof. It was just blue, blue, blue," Foster explained. It was really tough. This was not the original plan for the film;  Zemeckis had initially approached Sidney Poitier to play the president, but the actor turned the role down in favor of The Jackal.
When he said the line 'We will continue to listen closely to what it has to say,' I almost died.

As this occurs, the radio signals start to drop out and reflect older programming, representing the distance these signals would have traveled at the speed of light, eventually becoming silent as the distance becomes much greater.

It had to look absolutely real. Eventually the Pod was modified to a spherical capsule that encases the traveler. Zemeckis and the production crew also made several visits to the Kennedy Space Center at Merritt Island adjacent to Cape Canaveralwhere officials allowed them access to sites off-limits to most visitors.
Filmmakers were also brought onto Launch Complex 39 before the launch of the space shuttle. The resulting photographs and research were incorporated into the design of the machine's surrounding supports and gantry. Once the concept met with the filmmakers' approval, physical construction began on the sets for the Pod itself, the interior of the elevator, and the gantry, which took almost four months to build.
The rest of the effects were compiled digitally by Imageworks.

This is simply the story of the Berry family, for better or worse, with John telling it like it is while refraining from any sensationalism or judgment calls, to which the likes of a film of this nature would ordinarily be disposed. Lowe gives a convincing performance as John-- arguably some of the best work he's ever done-- and he underscores his role of narrator by making the story as much about the others as about himself, which is generous, and a good piece of acting.
Foster, who would've been twenty-one or twenty-two when this was filmeddisplays an insight, poise and maturity well beyond her years, with a performance that is intuitively discerning and believable, and which serves the character so well while bringing her vividly to life.
There is such a natural quality to Foster's acting that it makes her a joy to watch, and it makes Frannie a memorable character. The young Dundas is also very impressive in the role of Lilly and, like Foster, manages to bring the necessary maturity to the character that makes her entirely credible.
The film is by turns poignant, funny and disturbing; one could say a succinct reflection of life.
And, diverse as this story is, thematically, there will undoubtedly be one aspect of it or another to which just about anyone will be able to relate. Because that's what life is; a journey we all share, but which we take on different roads that sooner or later are bound to intersect, and which becomes the point at which we realize something that's inescapable and possibly the most important thing we will ever learn: That we are not alone in this.
And that's the magic of the movies. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. It follows the book wonderfully, with exception to minor details.
I'm not saying it's a better MOVIE than Garp or cider house, but it is much truer to the book, and that's always been important to me.
