The Sixth Sense

DOWN & DIRTY:
Horror/Suspense: A child psychiatrist tries to help a troubled eight-year-old boy who's haunted by visions and encounters with dead people.

NITTY GRITTY:
Dr. Malcolm Crowe (BRUCE WILLIS) is a child psychiatrist celebrating a recent award with his loving wife Anna (OLIVIA WILLIAMS). Their happiness turns to terror when a former and now adult patient, Vincent Gray (DONNIE WAHLBERG), breaks into their house claiming Crowe failed him. Before the doctor can figure out what he means, Gray shoots him and then kills himself.

Move ahead several months, Malcolm takes on a new case regarding a troubled eight-year-old boy, Cole Sear (HALEY JOEL OSMENT). It seems that Cole has no friends, spends most of his time in the local church or in a tent in his room filled with religious figures, and behaves in what most would consider a psychotic fashion.

Cole is reluctant to talk to this stranger, but when the doctor exposes his own faults detailing his seemingly failing marriage -- the boy begins to open up.

Meanwhile, Malcolm worries that his wife may be having an affair with one of her co-workers.

Cole's troubles are far worse. He's constantly visited by dead people, most of whom don't realize they've died. Terrified by the encounters, Cole -- with the help of Dr. Crowe -- tries to deal with the visits.

THE ENDING:
Dr. Crowe suggests to Cole that maybe the reason the dead visit him is they want to tell him something. He tells Cole that if he listens to what the dead visitors have to say, perhaps they will go away. Cole agrees to the doctor's suggestion.

He has a visit with a young dead girl. He and Crowe then visit the girl's home and Cole finds and gives a small wooden box to the girl's father. Inside the box is a videotape. The father views the videotape and sees his now dead daughter putting on a puppet show. The puppet show ends but the tape keeps rolling as the mother comes in with food. He watches as she puts a toxic chemical into the girl's food. The mother killed her daughter and that is what the girl wanted her father to know.

Later, Cole suggests that Crowe talk to his wife while she is asleep. That she will listen to him then. Crowe suddenly realizes that he is dead. He died from the shooting. Now it all makes sense. His wife being distant. His missing their anniversary dinner. Her watching their wedding video. Another man entering her life.

Crowe goes to his sleeping wife and whispers to her that everything will be different tomorrow. Still asleep she tells him goodbye.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
The incredible performance of 11-year-old Haley Joel Osment. It's Oscar caliber.
