Before I Go to Sleep (2014)

Forty-year-old Christine Lucas wakes up in bed with a man she does not know, in an unfamiliar house. The man explains that he is her husband, Ben, and that she suffered brain damage from a car accident ten years earlier. Christine wakes up every morning with no memory of her life from her early twenties onwards. Christine receives treatment from Dr. Nasch, a neurologist at a local hospital who provides her a camera to record her thoughts and progress each day, and calls her every morning to remind her to watch the video in the camera. Soon, she starts to discover the truth around her. - synopsis from IMDB

A strong cast is rarely a guarantee for a good movie, but fortunately, Before I Go to Sleep proves that there are exceptions. We a promised a thriller movie, but the suspense doesn’t really catch on for a while. During the movie, the tension is gradually increased after a number of plot twists that make us consider, but mainly re-consider who is exactly who in this story. This is done very well and makes the movie exciting from beginning to end. Well worth the sit-down. There’s good acting all around from a very small cast. The only complaint I had was that the ending took slightly too long IMHO, but it still managed to wrap up before I wandered off.
