About the Movie

After surviving eight near-death accidents throughout his unlucky life, Louis Drax (Aiden Longworth) plunges off a steep cliff on his ninth birthday. While police investigate the cause of Louis’s near-fatal fall and the whereabouts of his violent father, Peter (Aaron Paul), acclaimed neurologist Dr. Allan Pascal (Jamie Dornan) uses unorthodox techniques to try to tap into the boy’s unconscious mind and reveal the truth about the events that led to his condition. But as he’s drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery of Louis’s seeming ability to cheat death, the doctor finds himself falling for Louis’s mother, Natalie (Sarah Gadon). As new clues emerge in the case, a shocking revelation changes the fates of Louis Drax and everyone around him.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It's not clear whether "The 9th Life of Louis Drax" is deliberately inconsistent or merely an example of confused filmmaking. One thing is certain, however: It sure leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Sep 1, 2016

Rotten: For Aja, who has demonstrated an appetite for truly twisted material in the past, it all adds up to a disappointingly tame outing. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Sep 2, 2016

Rotten: [A] ham-fisted, head-scratching mix of fantasy, potboiler and family drama ... – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Aug 31, 2016

Fresh: The shift in tone is expertly managed by Aja, who brings it on with such subtlety that we're stunned to realize we've entered a profoundly unsettling mystery that grapples with taboo themes. – Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer, Sep 1, 2016

Customer Reviews

Original and fantastic.

Some movies fly under the radar, and maybe a few bad reviews don't give it the hype it deserves. Forger the blurb, it's just not accurate. Watched it on a whim because frankly Gadon has one of the most beautiful faces on the silver screen and I liked her in indignation. Aaron Paul continues to impress on the big screen. The directior may have a rep for twisted work, but while there is twisted, it's not thrown in your face and is both a movie that keeps you engaged and a slow burn that doesn't rush to the reveals. A few things going on at once actually makes things better, not confusing. I'm a big fan of skipping previews and I'm glad I did. Just rent it and enjoy.

Excellent movie
