Knowing is based on a story originally written by American novelist Ryne Pearson. After a number of rewrites, the script that eventually went to film was written by British screenwriter Stuart Hazeldine and Australian Alex Proyas (who also directed the movie).
The film is set in Boston, and to represent the city, filmmakers used Australian locations such as Geelong Ring Road, Melbourne Museum, Mount Macedon, and Collins Street. Filming also took place at Camberwell High School, which was converted into John Adams Elementary, set in Boston circa 1958. Interior shots took place at the Australian Synchrotron to represent an observatory. Filming also took place at the Haystack Observatory in Westford, Massachusetts. In addition to practical locations, filming also took place at the Melbourne Central City Studios in Docklands.
Homer comes to fear that the Rapture is coming. Marge comforts Homer by telling him that the Rapture would not go unannounced (and Lisa agrees, saying that the world may end 100 years from now or from global warming, but not from the Rapture). Homer is won over by her reassurance.
The next day, as Homer drives around Springfield in his car, he sees the devil (actually a man in an advertising costume) and blood falling from the sky (actually from an injured whale hanging from a helicopter), which he takes as signs that the Rapture is coming. He uses nonsensical numerology to calculate the date and time, finding that it is only a week away.

I saw this movie today and I must say, I dont really know what to think. I don't want to go into detail and spoil it for everyone but to me it just seemed like a potpourri of doom and gloom. A little of this, a dash of that, it didn't make any sense. There really wasn't an explanation. Was it religious? Sci-fi? I don't know? both?
I can only say I was very confused and disturbed by it.

Just thought I'd point out that I distinctly heard the girl say "... whisper people." I know that kinda puts a damper on the occult/lucifer thing, just sayin' is all.
