Forsaken in a new Oslo apartment, a frail blind woman battles to come to terms with her condition, as she slowly retracts into an elaborate fantasy bubble. Are her stories fanning her suspicions, or is this what total blindness looks like?
Ellen Dorrit Petersen,
Everything changes for Eva when she receives a life insurance check accidentally made out for five million dollars instead of the expected fifty thousand dollars. She and her best friend take the money and head out for the adventure of a lifetime.
Bestselling novelist Bill Oakland loses his wife and his sight in a vicious car crash. Five years later, socialite Suzanne Dutchman is forced to read to Bill in an intimate room three times a week as a plea bargain for being associated with her husband's insider trading. A passionate affair ensues, forcing them both to question whether or not it's ever too late to find true love. But when Suzanne's husband is let out on a technicality, she is forced to choose between the man she loves and the man she built a life with.
Reunites Demi Moore and Alec Bladwin who previously worked together in The Juror (1996). See more »
In the library scene where Alec Baldwin's character gives an impressive lecture, it is clearly heard that a crew member is saying the phrases then Alec Bladwin repeats them so each phrase is said twice. See more »
This film tells the story of a New York housewife, whose billionaire husband is detained in jail for fraud. She is sentenced to community service, and has to read to a successful but obnoxious author who turned blind from a traffic accident.
I think the title "Blind" doesn't really do the film justice, because the story is not really about blindness. Instead, it is a good romance film, with one character who happens to be blind. Alec Baldwin's character may be obnoxious, but somehow he is charming and attracts sympathy. His interaction and the blossoming friendship with Suzanne is well built up and portrayed. The scenery of the seaside town in the final scene is breath taking as well! I liked watching it.
