Movie Info

A high profile Hollywood film producer becomes transfixed with a beautiful soap opera character who inexplicably emerges from his television set and beckons him to take one final shot at living life on his own terms. Black Racklin has all the respect, money, and success that one could hope for in life, yet despite all of this he remains emotionally suffocated by the pressures of his job. Each night when he closes his eyes, Black is haunted by dreams of a passing train, and a mysterious traveler who urges him to hop aboard - and each night Black fails to take that decisive leap. The only time that Black is able to find peace is when he's sitting at home and mindlessly channel-surfing, until one night when he comes across a bizarre soap opera. Bewitched by a beautiful character named Katherine, Black is dumbfounded when she magically appears in his living room and the two fall instantly in love. Now faced with the decision to finally leap on that passing train or snap himself back to reality, Black must finally make the decision that will define the rest of his life. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Channels

Nat Christian, as writer, director and actor, cooks a delicious dessert with CHANNELS. As the lead character, he is endearing. His co-star, Kim Oja, is quite charming. They make an attractive romantic-comedy couple. As writer and director, Christina leads us down the romantic-comedy road, then hits us with an unusual and captivating turn.

Thoughtful movies that take our minds elsewhere seem to be a new trend. Imaginative, heartfelt and romantic, CHANNELS was a joy to watch.
