“What if I could do my life over again?” This is the tantalizing question at the heart of ILLUSION, a new film starring the legendary actor Kirk Douglas. The award-winning movie tells the story of a once powerful but now ailing film director, who is visited by the ghost of a dear, departed friend. He plays movie scenes from the director’s life (called Akashic records), convincing him of the need to set things right after a lifetime of rejecting his only son. On his deathbed, he receives the gift of redemption… Very cool movie. My husband and I both thought it was fabulous. Just watch the trailer below.
During the month of May, you can get the Illusion DVD for free, along with nine other excellent films, just for joining the Spiritual Cinema DVD Club’s risk-free trial offer. (details follow)
More About Illusion
Michael A. Goorjian stars as Kirk Douglas’s son and also directs this movie. The plot flips and turns, offers suspense and true love. Douglas, the celebrated star of more than 80 films including SPARTACUS, gives the performance of a lifetime at age 88, despite suffering a stroke in 1996. Now age 90, Douglas says, “ILLUSION appealed to me because I found something spiritual in it. The man I played was not a very good guy throughout his life but he felt the need to do something good before he died. Playing this role was a great privilege.” Watch the Trailer below.
