Number of Times Seen – Twice (23 Oct 2012 and 10 Feb 2021)
Brief Synopsis – Following a car accident a woman loses her recent memory and can’t remember her husband or the life that they have lived together.
My Take on it – Intriguing story that works quite well largely due to the performances of the two leads.
Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams are both great in these roles and the chemistry between them feels so genuine throughout.
The fact that this is based on a real story adds so much to things and helps make things feel even more enjoyable.
Its even more effective due to the fact that they stay away from the usual tropes and pitfalls that films like this usually fall into.
The idea of trying to make a couple find a way to re-fall in love is grat to watch especially when the story turns out to be a tug of war from directions that the main character isn’t quite sure about the history of things.
The supporting cast is also great and Sam Neill and Jessica Lange are both great as McAdams’ parents.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Channing Tatum revealed in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that he wore an oversized prosthetic for the scene where he walks naked in front of Rachel McAdams character in order to get a realistic reaction out of her. This was apparently the take that was used in the final cut. (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
