  Expect a conventional psychological thriller from "The Forgotten," and you'll be startled by some truly unexpected turns. The mystery and tension are there, and a superior cast — including Julianne Moore ("The Hours"), Dominic West ("Mona Lisa Smile"), Gary Sinise ("The Human Stain"), Alfre Woodard and Anthony Edwards — is committed to the program. But "The Forgotten" veers off into such mind-twisting territory that it's not what it first seems. Telly Paretta (Moore) is still mourning the loss of her 8-year-old son Sam, months after the fact. When her husband (Edwards) and psychiatrist (Sinise) tell her that Sam is a figment of her imagination and her memories of the child are the product of a mental disorder, she refuses to believe them. Her desperation leads her into an alliance with her neighbor, a retired hockey player (West) with similar memory confusion. Whether or not Telly is delusional, someone doesn't want her to keep asking questions, and will do what needs to be done to stop her. This has more than a little in common with the films of M. Night Shyamalan, although it's a notch better than his latest, "The Village." Director Joseph Ruben, who made the chiller "The Stepfather," and screenwriter Gerald Di Pego generate enough genuine jolts and novel circumstances in "The Forgotten" to make it memorable. A sympathetic Moore and a charismatic West do the rest.
