‘Before I Go To Sleep’

BeforeIGotoSleepI half-dozed through its first half as it meandered through its somewhat contrived storyline. Startled awake at the midpoint for a few minutes with an unexpected twist and then slumbered (me and the film) for the final reel. Kidman really should stay off the Botox if she wants to be convincing in her emotions!

It’s a bland, unconvincing adaptation by director Rowan Joffe of the best selling novel by S J Watson. Joffe is responsible for scripting 2 other bombs – The American and Brighton Rock – which is a pity as he also bought British films 28 Weeks Later, Gas Attack and Last Resort to the screen.
