Trama del film:

The film centers on a wounded Gulf war veteran who returns to his native Vermont suffering from bouts of amnesia. He is hitching and gets picked up by a stranger, things go pear shaped when a cop pulls them over and is murdered by the stranger. The vet. is wrongly accused of killing the cop and lands up in an asylum. A quack doctor prescribes a course of experimental therapy, restraining him in a heavy duty straight jacket-like device, and locks him away in a body drawer of the basement morgue. During course of his treatment he gets flashbacks and visions of his future , where he can foresee he is to die in four days time. The catch is he doesn't know how. Thus commences the classic race against time. Written by [email protected]

In 1991, in Iraq, the military Jack Starks is shot in the head and presumed dead. When he blinks his eyes in the morgue, the doctor is called. One year later, after being discharged from the army, while hitchhiking in a road in Vermont having amnesia problem, he helps a drunken woman, Jean Price, and her daughter, Jackie Price, fixing their car. Later, he gets a lift, but the driver is stopped by the police and kills the policeman with three shots. Jack is also shot in the head and incriminated by the real killer, who leaves his gun close to the fainted Jack. He goes to court and is sentenced to the mental institution Alpine Grove for insane criminals. Jack becomes the experiment of Dr. Thomas Becker, who drugs and dresses him with a jacket and lock him in a drawer for corpses in the morgue. While locked, Jack travels to 2007, where he meets a grown-up Jackie Price and they fall in love for each other. Jack envisions that the only exit from the institution is though the jacket.

    Just saw this at an advance screening. I liked it. Adrien Brody and
    Keira Knightley carry this film well. Although I have to admit that i
    was in the front row and watching a cinemascope film like that has one
    turning their head from left to right a lot. I recommend the star rover
    novel to read to anyone who likes this film. It was published in 1913,
    one of londons last books. it dealt with how the prison system at the
    time would strap people in straitjackets so tight that it would cause
    damage. The hero of the book comes to desire the tightening of the
    straps to the point where the guards have not seen, in order for him to
    more spiritually transcend his mind and soul into another life. He
    jaunts into other existences, all past, ie napoleon battle, viking
    conquest, to free his mind from the pain. The Jacket takes this idea in
    a way where the hero goes to a place that is involved in the plot
    running in the present.
