Storyline

Terry Evanshen had a perfect life: at twelve he met Lorraine, his true love, future wife and mother of his three daughters Tara, Tracy and Jennifer, and decided to become an Canadian football star, which the hunk did brilliantly. Then a car accident puts him in a deep coma he's unlikely to survive. When he awakes anyway, Lorraine hopes that his amnesia, which reduces every aspect of his past to meaningless bits and flashes, will also be temporary and takes him home, but the grim prognosis of permanent brain damage causing nasty character disturbance seems to come true, as his behavior is erratic and so aggressive he scares everyone. Are Lorraine's flash-backs to happier days just a cruel memory, or can he learn to become their loving husband and dad again? Written by KGF Vissers

Great movie
15 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

The movie starts off extremely well, and very few negatives arose, the main ones being the movie was essentially set in the present, as opposed to 1988 (Terry with the cell phone, and references to the Internet). I thought David James Elliot delivered the goods, and on a silver platter! His mannerisms when his character first wakes up and tries to adjust in the following days/weeks are simply outstanding, and go straight to the heart! The supporting cast was very well chosen and very well directed throughout. The fact that this is a true story only adds to the emotions of the movie. I hope it is shown again, or at least released on DVD! 10/10!
