Day 285: Before I Go to Sleep (December, 19)

Before I Go to Sleep is a pretty interesting thriller until the end, when all hell of bad writing went loose. A good plot doesn't make a story - many trilogies with a good first book and lousy sequels are there to prove that.

Nicole Kidman and Collin Firth together are always nice, doesn't mattering if in a big or a smaller production. I was spooked by the main character's troubles, eager to finally know what is really happening with her. The absolute lack of control on our own life is always a scary thing. But the conclusion is so badly tied up that I turned off the TV very disappointed with it. There was so many ways of making this believable, but the rush to finalize a story is one of the worst enemies of a writers, that's for sure.
