WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Christine (Kidman) suffers from anterograde amnesia, meaning that whatever she did the previous day she has no memory of when she wakes the next morning. As she tries to regain her memories with the help of her husband Ben (Firth) and general physician Dr. Nash (Strong), she soon discovers a series of disturbing truths involving those around her, and must confront them before the memories inevitably fade away…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Before I Go To Sleep is a tense psychological thriller that not only provokes good memories of similar films like Memento, but also waltzes with the ideas of trust and deception, all from the perspective of an amnesiac.
