I am pretty sure that there will be some people who will consider "Second Sight: A Love Story" somewhat drawn out. To a degree that is correct - the movie could have been cut down by a significant portion without hurting the story at all. As it is, it does seem a little too long. Also, I think some people will find the story somewhat predictable. When the blind main character, for example, rides a horse for the first time, can you guess what happens? Yeah, I guessed it as well.
All the same, despite the predictable plot twists and the slow pace, I did find the movie rewarding. For starters, the blind main character has been written to not be one note. Though she is overall sympathetic, there are a few episodes when she acts in an unlikable manner. It's also interesting to see how she deals with many things in her life with her handicap. And there are some scenes of surprising emotion, especially the final sequence. In the end, patient viewers will find enough rewards with this movie
