Claire tells Christine (while the latter is at home) that she can meet her at Greenwich Observatory and be there "in an hour".
As Christine was taken to Ascot District Hospital from home, it is reasonable to assume she lives in Berkshire - and therefore would not have been able to reach Greenwich Observatory in less than an hour as she is seen waiting for Claire. See more »
Who are you?
I'm your husband... Ben.
We got married in 1999. That was 14 years ago. Christine, you're 40.
[hands her her clothes]
You had an accident. It was a bad accident. You had head injuries. And you have problems remembering things.
What things? What...?
Everything. You store up information for a day, and when you wake up in the morning, it's all gone. You're back to your early 20s. You'll be okay. Just... trust me.

A satisfying, keeps-you-guessing thriller. While amnesia is certainly not the most original of plot devices, there's something unique here in terms of truly portraying the emotional, daily hell an amnesiac and loved ones must suffer. This is aided, by no small means, by strong performances by Colin Firth and especially Nicole Kidman.
The plot definitely has suspense and there are sufficient twists and turns to ensure that you truly can not predict the outcome. There's also a nice combination of languid pacing intermixed with truly jarring and lurid scenes. In some ways this had a dream-like (or, take your pick, nightmarish) quality in tone.
A few plot holes make themselves known by the movie's end, but when a thriller ushers you out the theater door while still meditating on memory, marriage, and trust...I'd say that's a job well done.
