  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Not long after the death of their eight-year-old son Adam (Bright), Paul (Kinnear) and Jessie Duncan (Romijn-Stamos) are approached by Dr. Richard Wells (De Niro) who offers to clone their son. Relocating and severing ties with family and friends, the Duncans move forward with the experiment and the result appears to be a Godsend. Their new son Adam appears to be happy and healthy and lives a remarkably similar life to the original Adam...until the eve of his eighth birthday, when terrifying visions and night terrors disrupt everything for which the Duncans had dreamed. (Suzanne Hodges)
