Disclosure: I received a copy of the movie below in order to facilitate my review, all opinions are my own.
When I started watching The 9th Life of Louis Drax I wasn’t quite sure what I got myself into. I kept thinking, “I am not so sure about this movie”, but I kept watching because I am a big fan of Aaron Paul and I felt if he was in it, there had to be something to it. Then his character disappeared and I was left to keep going to see where the movie was headed.
Louis Drax has escaped death 8 times before his 9th birthday and that is when he has a terrible accident that all seems to unravel. The character of Louis is like a child combined with a smart alec kid. He is blunt and not afraid to say what he feels. This can at times catch you by surprise but his psychologist handles him very well.
Without spoiling anything you are going to have to give it a chance to reap the rewards of the outcome. I struggled for a bit but it made it all worth it in the end. Make sure you get your hands on a copy of “The 9th Life of Louis Drax”, coming soon!

After surviving eight near-death accidents throughout his unlucky life, Louis Drax (Aiden Longworth) plunges off a steep cliff on his ninth birthday. While police investigate the cause of Louis’s near-fatal fall and the whereabouts of his violent father, Peter (Aaron Paul), acclaimed neurologist Dr. Allan Pascal (Jamie Dornan) uses unorthodox techniques to try to tap into the boy’s unconscious mind and reveal the truth about the events that led to his condition. But as he’s drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery of Louis’s seeming ability to cheat death, the doctor finds himself falling for Louis’s mother, Natalie (Sarah Gadon). As new clues emerge in the case, a shocking revelation changes the fates of Louis Drax and everyone around him.
