Plot
This dark science-fiction thriller toggles between 1969 and 1999. It is about a man and his dead father who communicate on an old radio during an aurora borealis. This is an interesting concept that’s even better than words can describe. It’s pretty much a time travel film, if you break it down, and those are almost always excellent. Frequency is no exception.
Most people would love to travel in time, yet this rarely goes well in Hollywood. In Frequency, the elements of the past that undergo an alteration are disastrously inflicted on the future. This is your core intrigue. Of course, things get increasingly worse until they get out of proportion. This is a nice screenplay with practically no loose ends, considering how many paradoxes are involved.
The repercussions, when it comes to changing the past, range from conflicting memories to permanent amnesia. It is all depicted brilliantly by a script and a directing technique that rely on dialogue as little as possible. Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel are somewhat the same age, but you’ll truly believe they are father and son. Frequency makes us experience a wide variety of unusual emotions.
