(Nicole Kidman)

Nicole Kidman, Mark Strong and Colin Firth star in Before I Go To Sleep which can be seen on M-Net Movies Premiere DStv Channel 103 on October 23 at 20h00. The film was directed in 2014 by Rowan Joffé.

“She is on top form as a woman walking a psychological tightrope,” is how a leading critic described Nicole Kidman’s performance. The last time she played someone who fitted that description – Viginia Woolf in The Hours – she bagged an Oscar, a Bafta and a Golden Globe.

Christine suffers from amnesia and cannot remember anything from her past, which means she has to navigate her life from scratch every day – with a man she doesn’t know. She slowly uncovers each tiny detail comprising her history, and is confronted by one shock after the other.
