Summary Note When Louis Drax (Aiden Longworth) accidently plunges off a steep cliff on his ninth birthday it is not the first time in his short life that he has faced his own mortality. As police investigate the bizarre circumstances that have placed him in a coma, unconventional neurologist Dr. Allan Pascal (Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades of Grey) attempts to tap into the boy's unconscious mind. With Louis’ father Peter (Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad) absent, Dr Pascal is drawn close to the boy’s mother Natalie (Sarah Gadon, Dracula Untold) as he delves into the mystery of Louis' remarkable ability to cheat death. Based on the bestselling novel by Liz Jensen and directed by Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes), The 9th Life of Louis Drax is an intensely haunting crime thriller driven by obsession and intrigue." --
