Storyline

Nerve is a psychological drama that tells the story of Jakob Evans who has suffered an emotional breakdown from the death of his wife in a car accident. Having found his wife in bed with another man just before her death, Jakob decides his only chance of closure is to find her lover so that he can comprehend what they shared. With the help of Grace, a lost and troubled companion, Jakob starts to search for the pieces of the puzzle to lead him to the man but closure changes to obsession and revenge and ultimately forces Jakob to face his own personal failings, as Grace realizes all is not what it seems.

Nerve- an entertaining ride!
25 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Nerve is a new Aussie independent feature that is well worth checking out! It has uncovered great new talent in the film's director and the two leads who play Jakob and Grace. The film is a successful moody, dark take on one man's obsession to discover the identity of his dead wife's lover and is certainly an entertaining ride! Both the cinematography and musical score are fantastic and underpins the narrative fabulously. It is great to see inner city Sydney appear in the film in a gritty, dark way and becoming like another character in the film. Nerve also has a supporting cast featuring well known faces like Gary Sweet and Cameron Daddo but the stand out is Georgina Haig who plays Grace who is luminous on screen and delivers a strong performance through out alongside Christian Clark's Jakob. Following the screenings at this year's Sydney Film Festival, there were some less than positive reviews about the film which was surprising to read, as Nerve overall is bold debut. It is not a flashy, big budget film but a local, quiet achiever that slowly draws you in and keeps you guessing.
