Movie Info

Amer Atrash (Philippe Caland) moved from Lebanon to America with dreams of becoming a major fashion designer. But after 15 years, he is still nowhere close to realizing his vision, and repeated brushes with success have only left him bitter and disillusioned. When his wife (Virginia Madsen) tells him she's considering a divorce, the shock prompts Amer to confess a terrible secret that may be the cause of all his problems. He sets out to remedy his past in the hopes of saving his future.

  • Starts with a not-very-original insight and takes too many shortcuts delivering it.

    September 26, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • Several ordinarily banal movies soldered into one amazingly bad one.

  • After a bumpy start, Ripple Effect begins to show why Whitaker, Virginia Madsen and Minnie Driver signed on as executive producers and co-stars.

    September 5, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Thank God Whitaker is here to bring a bit of real pathos and ambiguity to his role as the spiritual guide who's gained wisdom through adversity, because without his Oscar-winning chops, this exercise in pop mysticism would have been too painful to bear.

  • Kudos to writer/director/co-star Philippe Caland for crafting such a refreshingly unpredictable cautionary tale and for coaxing inspired performances from an A-list cast which inludes by Forest Whitaker, Virginia Madsen and Minnie Driver.

  • I understand Amer is supposed to be going through some sort of spiritual crisis here, but Caland plays him as so self-centered and precious that it's impossible to feel any sympathy for him.
