A suicidal college student and his doctor enter a twisted world of supernatural horror in Stay. Henry Lethem (Ryan Gosling) plans to kill himself in three days, unless psychologist Sam Foster (Ewan McGregor) can stop him. Henry's been hearing disturbing voices and experiencing horrifying visions, but where does imagination end and reality begin? Sam suddenly finds he's losing his own grip on reality, as he, too, is thrust into a hellish place between life and death. With the help of his girlfriend (Naomi Watts), Sam races to unlock the terrifying secret behind Henry's waking nightmare before its too late!
A complicated plot which had us gripped from the beginning. Ewan McGregor is a psychiatrist who inherits a mysterious and disturbed patient played in an understated yet memorable way by Ryan Gosling. Touches of Donnie Darko and Sixth sense give you a small taster of what to expect. However, it is really not like either of these two films and we enjoyed the fantastic camera work which was very clever and unusual. Some people may find the film confusing; it is not an obvious plot and definitely needs some thought from the viewer.

McGregor's Wrong Trousers
- Stay review by CP Customer
The film was so interesting I became obsessed with McGregor's trousers half way through when they turned yellow and a little freaky.
I love psychological thrillers when they follow psychology - BUT this wow - if you can wait to the anti-climatic end (and the rest of my family couldn't deciding to go to their rooms or bed)
You really will be impressed by it's anti-climatic nature. Painful film - very hard slog for those who love the genre.
