PG Certificate


Our Score
In this undemanding and gently sentimental drama, Jane Seymour plays a prim divorcee who undergoes a striking personality change after receiving a heart transplant from a young, wild-living male donor. Yet while the accompanying nightmares convince her it's the dead man trying to make contact, her violinist offspring (Maggie Lawson) can't cope with having an independent, revamped mum. Despite the far-fetched premise, this true-story tale is actually rather ordinary, merely using the supernatural hints as a springboard to explore the complexities of mother/daughter relationships. Seymour is likeably zesty as the mini-skirted new woman with a love of rap music, but it's hard to empathise with Lawson's selfish petulance.


A middle-aged violinist undergoes a heart transplant operation, but afterwards starts to display the character traits of the organ donor - a hard-drinking, 22-year-old man - to the horror of her daughter. A series of ghostly visions of him finally convinces the musician that his soul is in her body. Drama, starring Jane Seymour, Maggie Lawson and Vincent Corazza.
