Forty seven year old Christine Lucas wakes up in bed with a man she does not know, in an unfamiliar house. The man explains that he is her husband, Ben, and that she suffered brain damage from a car accident ten years earlier. Christine wakes up every morning with no memory of her life from her early twenties onwards. Christine receives treatment from Dr. Nasch, a neurologist at a local hospital who provides her a camera to record her thoughts and progress each day, and calls her every morning to remind her to watch the video in the camera. Soon, she starts to discover the truth around her.Written by

Who are you?
I'm your husband... Ben.
We got married in 1999. That was 14 years ago. Christine, you're 40.

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.

I watched Before I go to sleep and Gone girl on 2 consecutive days and I liked the former much more. First of all, the run time is less and it's not too complicated. You almost have a clear idea of the lead actress's confusion within the first 20 minutes.
Acting was surely good.. Nicole Kidman plays her role very well, but the show stealer was Colin Firth! The neutral element he brings to his character and the way he balances his act throughout the movie were amazing. He alone managed to bring some tension to the movie.
It's no rocket science suspense..you just have to sit back and the mystery unravels the way you want and when you want it to. Overall, it's not one to be watched in a theater, but makes for a great DVD night or afternoon or whatever's your thing.
