A wonderful idea which does not quite translate into film
23 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I want to write this review without hinting at anything which may spoil it for you. The plot hovers around an estranged couple and their young daughter getting together at Christmas. As a result of an accident whilst driving home the daughter is comatised and locked in. The prognosis does not look good and Josh (Barnes) the father embarks on a long crusade to connect with his daughter Brooke and bring her out of the coma. Much of Josh's crusade is a mix of flashback and hid detective work which tends to blur detail of appear at of sequence.

In spite of the confusion surrounding his efforts to connect with Brooke, there is something strangely compelling about his passion to uncover the links which may save her life. There is also Josh's estranged wife Emma running a counter problem for him as she consider options which he does not approve.

The denouement is not best written or played out, as explanatory scenes are repeated as if to provide us with answers which never quite satisfy what the film has encouraged us to believe up to that point. This is a shame because the concept is well developed as a mystery right up until the explanations are shoved into our eyes and cheapen the whole event. However I still managed to come up with my explanation of what the end represented and it was different to what others thought. Certainly a film which makes a conversation piece afterwards.

Six out of ten.
