The last thing Ben (Colin Firth) remembers before he woke up in hospital was driving along a country road on a dark and rainy night and arguing with his wife Elisa (Naomie Harris). When he hears that she died in the car crash that he caused, he is overcome with grief and guilt. To make matters even worse the entire country is obsessed with the shocking murder of pop star Lauren Parris, and the resulting media frenzy seems to trivialise Ben's grief. When he gets out of hospital, he tries to move on with life and even finds a new apartment. For a while things seem to be getting better. He finds a new job and his beautiful neighbour Charlotte (Mena Suvari) seems to have taken a liking to him. But then he begins to be haunted by visions of Elisa that seem to indicate that he had something to do with the murder of Lauren Parris. Soon he is not certain what is real and what is imaginary, and his confusion drives him to an awful and tragic act.

What the critics are saying:

"Hampered by narrative incoherence, sluggish pacing and emotionally remote characters."
- David Rooney, Variety

"A sleek psychological thriller outwitted by its own hyper craftsmanship."
- Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter

"Lurks around like it's some kind of innovative, all-original psychological thriller, when in fact it rates a big fat "so what?""
- Eric D. Snider,

The only thing traumatic about this movie is the 90 minutes of your life that it will waste. Even the lovely Mena Suvari can't save this turkey.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
