Solace- The Movie

“Solace is a 2015 American mystery thriller film directed by Afonso Poyart and starring Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Abbie Cornish. The film was released on December 16, 2016, by Lionsgate Premiere. The film is about a psychic doctor, John Clancy (Anthony Hopkins), who works with FBI special agent Joe Merriwether (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in search of serial killer Charles Ambrose (Colin Farrell). The film’s script was originally planned and developed as a sequel to the 1995 thriller film Se7en, but the idea was eventually scrapped and Solace was completed as a standalone film.”

“Having lived in isolation since the death of his daughter two years ago, psychic Dr. John Clancy is contacted by his friend Joe Merriwether, an FBI special agent, who asks for his help in tracking down a serial killer with very elaborate methods. Joe seems unable to convince Clancy, but when his partner Katherine Cowles enters and touches Clancy on the shoulder after giving him the case files, Clancy envisions a violent future event with blood spilling down Katherine’s forehead, among other insights into her life. Clancy reluctantly agrees. FBI special agent Cowles, Merriwether’s partner, is skeptical of Clancy’s gift, but is soon convinced otherwise.”

“The victims all turn out to have been suffering from terminal illnesses and Clancy realizes the killer has abilities exceeding his own. Merriwether is shot by the suspect and admits he was diagnosed with terminal cancer before dying in the hospital. After the funeral, Clancy is confronted by the killer, who explains he is sparing his victims from a slow death, killing them out of mercy, and that he engineered Merriwether’s death. He arrogantly declares he has seen all the possible outcomes of their confrontation, but Clancy surprises him; nonetheless, the killer escapes after distracting police by saying Clancy has a gun.”

“Cowles discovers the killer is a man called Charles Ambrose. Clancy is forced to test his abilities to their limits and is able to intercept Ambrose as he poisons his latest victim. Clancy tells him he has no right to take time away from even the terminally ill, such as his friend Merriwether.”

“Cowles and Clancy finally confront Ambrose in a subway car. Ambrose tells Clancy that he is dying and asks Clancy to shoot him. He wants Clancy to take over the role of mercy killing and warns him that Cowles will be killed if he does not shoot him. Cowles runs up behind Clancy and both Ambrose and Clancy fire their weapons. Ambrose dies and Clancy is injured. Clancy and Cowles become close, and Clancy sees Cowles as the daughter he lost. In the hospital, Clancy gives Cowles a letter for his wife, with whom Clancy reconciles. He recalls euthanizing his own daughter as she was dying from leukemia.”

This is a must see movie!! If you are interested in psychics and learning how struggle and heartache can throw you into something that can change your perception on how you view the course of things.
