BE­FORE I GO TO SLEEP ★★★ Di­rected by Rowan Joffe. Star­ring Ni­cole Kid­man, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Anne-Marie Duff

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - CINEMA -

Chris­tine (Kid­man) suf­fers from an­tero­grade am­ne­sia, or, to use a med­i­cal term, am­ne­sia im­prob­a­bil­i­tas. Thus, our hero­ine awak­ens ev­ery morn­ing and is star­tled to dis­cover that she is mar­ried to Ben (Firth). When he leaves for work, she is con­tacted daily by my Dr Nash (Strong), a mys­te­ri­ous neu­ro­sci­en­tist helps her piece to­gether mem­o­ries of the bru­tal at­tack that has left her thus. Joffe’s adap­ta­tion of SJ Wat­son’s best­seller is silly as heck, of­ten in a good way. Cert 15A, gen­eral re­lease, 91mins
