This is one of those movies where somebody calls me a few years from now and says, “Is ‘Before I Go to Sleep’ worth seeing?” I won’t have a clue what it was. You see, just like the premise of the movie – a woman wakes up each morning not remembering the previous day, I barely remembered it the next day. I doubt I will remember it a year from now.
It’s that convenient movie dilemma. Jimmy Kimmel made fun of Nicole Kidman about it last week, saying, “People always have amnesia in movies, but I’ve never met anybody, or even anybody that knows somebody that suffered from it.”
