In “Memento,” Guy Pearce uses Post-it notes, Polaroids and other visual clues to overcome his memory loss to find the truth behind a murder. But maybe all he needed was a good doctor. In the forthcoming “Before I Go To Sleep,” Nicole Kidman will also get to the truth behind a crime, thanks to a handy physician, all while trying to manage a condition that sees her memory wiped out every time she goes to bed.
Co-starring Colin Firth and Mark Strong, produced by Ridley Scott and based on the best-seller by S.J. Watson (some seriously strong credentials here), the Rowan Joffe– (“Brighton Rock“) directed film follows a woman who digs into her attempted murder, while trying to unravel whether she can trust her husband who or may not be who he says he is. It’s a premise that could be tricky to land effectively, but we’ll let you judge with the first trailer below.
“Before I Go To Sleep” opens on September 12th via indie outlet Clarius Entertainment. [Vlicious]
