If life were a dream, what would you dream of? Would the skies never darken? Would the streets be paved with gold? Would heaven be nothing but a portrait of pure beauty? If life were a dream, would you be afraid to die?
Memories define us. Childhood moments lay down the foundation of who we are to become. Echoes of youth follow us over time. Hopes and dreams burn bright but then dwindle under the weight of the world, and we live. And we remember, but what if our memories were not real? What if we are nothing but a dream?
We take each day for granted. We follow our regular routine, go to work, and do errands before returning home. We ride the subway, lost in thought, contemplating moments of our life, and trying not to think of another long day ahead. Home is where the heart lives, and warm moments of laughter and love wait for us among friends and family. And the days continue, and we follow. But what if there were no more days to come?
What is real? Are those tears streaming down your cheek? Is that rhythmic beating your heart’s way of saying that it’s there? If you bleed, does that mean you are alive, and do you believe everything you see, everything that you touch? Are you being haunted, or are you a ghost trying to desperately hold on to a life and not slip into that void that we call death? Is the only way to not die to dream of a world, where you are still alive, but can you escape your fate?
The movie, Stay is a haunting tale of one man’s escape from the hands of fate. Broken pieces of the last night of his life flood back into a world made real. His struggle to remain alive will lead him to one set on saving his life, but will he accept his help? With predictions and illusions, he descends further into his escape, and the one to save him may already be too late.
And as the journey to save a life continues, one man will realize that life is not what it seems. Déjà vu may be more than coincidence, and those in his life may be more than he realizes. And as he spirals down into a world that once had order, meaning, the fabric of reality begins to tear, and all his questions only have one answer. And they lie within the one that he must save.
With a spell-binding storyline that will captivate you from beginning to end, you are pulled into a world you thought you knew or understood. Conflicted characters with depth and mystery are illuminated through the talents of the cast, and the music that chases the story has a haunting touch. Special effects will peel back layers of reality, and nothing is what it seems. And in the face of death, how do we escape but in a world that we dream?
This film won Best Director and Best Cinematography, and was nominated for five other categories. The screenwriter was nominated, and rightly so. Taken from a short story that first appeared in the Saturday Evening Post in 1933 by Maurice Walsh, Green Rushes, Frank Nugent was able to weave a story rich in subtext and conflict.
The collector’s edition of the DVD includes an interview with Maureen O’Hara where she reminisces about filming The Quiet Man, and is well worth watching.
