Directed by Greg Hoblit, "Frequency" premiered in 2000, a good year for a millennium-type film. It's an exceptionally good "time-travel-ish" crime thriller with a heavy accent on the father-son relationship.

19. By what means do Frank and John communicate over a significant time span, in the film "Frequency"?

From Quiz Frequency

Answer: ham radio

"Frequency" as a film title has a double meaning, with one being the frequency of the ham radio signal used by the father, then years later by the son, intersecting in time so they can speak to one another. The other meaning is the frequency of the scientific phenomena creating the opportunity for this time-warpy thing to occur. It is a really scientifically sophisticated notion by screenwriter Toby Emmerich, otherwise an accomplished Executive Producer of an impressive number of films, including "The Notebook," "A History of Violence," "Wedding Crashers," and "Sex in the City 2". His idea: Instead of people traveling through time, voices do. In what would be majorly weird and trippy if it really happened, John the adult gets to talk to "Little Johnny" -- himself -- over the radio.

From Quiz Frequency

Answer: The Nightingale Murders

The tag is undoubtedly a nod to the famous Crimean War nurse, Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) who, studying and working in London prior to the war, almost singlehandedly turned the profession of nursing from "one step above prostitution" to the level of comfort and care required of the sick and dying, especially the poor. As a result, "Nightingale" became almost synonymous with "nurse."

30. Who is the serial killer in "Frequency"?

From Quiz Frequency

Answer: Jack Shepard, police officer

The same actor, Shawn Doyle, plays the villain over the span of thirty years (but his "aged" makeup doesn't work very well, in my opinion). Doyle also appeared in "The Majestic" and "Don't Say a Word," both in 2001, and has many television credits on his resume. Although too often cops are portrayed negatively in films (e.g., on-the-take , brutal macho men, or bumbling idiots), a cop as a serial killer strikes me as unique. Jack Shepard's mother was a nurse and either an early victim of his or perhaps just the source of his sexual anger towards nurses ... depending on whether we're viewing him before or after the butterfly flaps its wings.
