Your thoughts attract things with a force you cannot see, but is definitely real." Roadside Attractions has debuted an official trailer for The Secret: Dare to Dream, a feature adaptation of the bestselling book "The Secret" written by Rhonda Byrne. "Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions, and philosophies throughout the centuries." Katie Holmes stars in this film as Miranda Wells, a struggling mother of three kids whose life is transformed when she meets a mysterious, charismatic man who believes in the karmic power of positive thinking, specifically the three-step process of asking, believing, and then receiving. The groundbreaking book by Rhonda Byrne has sold over 34 million copies worldwide, which means plenty of people really love this kind of positive thinking trick. The cast also includes Josh Lucas, Jerry O'Connell, Celia Weston, Aidan Pierce Brennan, Sarah Hoffmeister, and Chloe Lee. I don't want to say this is quackery, it's better than religion, but it is a bit kooky. See below.
