I Don't Hear Anything

The Night Listener has a really interesting premise: Gabriel Noone, a depressed radio host, develops a phone relationship with a young, sexually-abused boy and his foster mother, but comes to doubt that the boy actually exists after a few too many things don't add up. Unfortunately, that's about all it has. Despite a decent performance by Robin Williams, the film doesn't really go anywhere (not counting Wisconsin). Instead, you sit there waiting for something to happen and nothing really ever does. So, I'm giving The Night Listener a C.
