Christine is a woman who wakes up each morning with no memories of her past, a result, her husband Ben keeps telling her, of a traumatic accident that she had. As new truths emerge and eventually terrify her, Christine asks her doctor for help to find out who she really is and what actually happened to her that wiped out her memory of everything, including herself.
Starring in this well-plotted and excellently-written potboiler is Nicole Kidman as Christine, Colin Firth as Ben, and Mark Strong as Dr. Nasch with a supporting cast that includes Anne-Marie Duff as Christine’s friend Claire, Dean-Charles Chapman as Christine’s and Ben’s son Adam, and Adam Levy billed as “the husband.” Listen to Ed Shearmur’s beautifully-arranged musical score and watch Ben Davis’ superb cinematography of “Before I Go to Sleep” on putlocker and be awed.
Unfortunately, only the music and the visuals are worth watching in this film directed by Rowan Joffé. Both Kidman and Firth – who also starred together in “The Railway Man” – must have done “Before I Go to Sleep” without reading the script. At best, watch it for the strong, commanding presence of Strong who, fortunately for the audience, plays a good guy this time.
