Before I Go to Sleep

2014-09-12 10:24
What's it about:

A woman wakes up every day, remembering nothing as a result of a traumatic accident in her past. One day, new terrifying truths emerge that force her to question everyone around her.

What the critics say:

As a thriller this is perfectly effective, but while director Rowan Joffe keeps the twists coming, something about Kidman's blank, frosty performance is unconvincing.
- Cath Clarke, Time Out

The good news is that Rowan Joffe's adaptation of S.J. Watson's 2011 publishing phenom is far from a snooze; the bad news is that it's the film's escalating, po-faced ludicrousness that holds our attention.
- Guy Lodge, Variety

What might have been a smart, insightful thriller is instead a creepy bedtime story.
- Stella Papamichael, Digital Spy

You couldn't say that Before I Go to Sleep isn't entertaining. But you couldn't say it was remotely plausible or logical either.
- Tara Brady, Irish Times

Don’t. Trust. Anyone.
