Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Passengers

Claire Summers (Anne Hathaway), a grief counselor, begins working with several survivors of a plane crash. When the crash victims start to become no shows for the therapy sessions, Claire begins to suspect that the airline is bribing the surviving passengers with hush money in an effort to hide any corporate responsibility for the crash.

When Claire becomes involved with crash survivor, Eric (Patrick Wilson), the young therapist begins to realize that things may not be exactly as she had seemed and that she, too, is closer to the plane tragedy than she ever believed possible.

As Claire's memories take shape and acceptance of her own mortality becomes apparent, she begins to understand and accept that each person to have returned to her life recently had done so with a specific purpose in mind.
Best part of story, including ending: I thought this movie was beautiful in its tragic sense. It reminded me that life has no guarantees and that none of us knows just how many days we are given in this world. The plot of the movie could have been stronger, but it was still enjoyable to watch.

Best scene in story: I enjoyed the scene where Claire realizes that all her departed loved ones were trying to help her with her own transition to the other side. I found this realization to be quite comforting.

Opinion about the main character: Claire was a strong, innocent and empathetic character that in many ways reminded me of myself. She was determined and did not want to give up on her clients, so strongly believing she was right about their whereabouts.
