Boring and Predictable
10 September 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The relationship of the teenager Fay Delussey (Sophie Turner) with her family is deeply affected when her beloved father Don (Rhys Ifans) has multiple sclerosis and her mother Ann (Claire Forlani) starts a love affair. Her teacher John (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) invites Fay to perform the important role of Lady Macbeth in a school play and her schoolmate Monica Meldrum (Charlotte Vega) is jealous of her with the choice. Soon strange events happen to Fay and she believes that Monica is the responsible for the acts. But her father discloses a family secret about his ghost daughter.

"Another Me" is a slow-paced, boring and predictable ghost story. This is not the usual genre of the great director Isabel Coixet from "My Life Without Me", "The Secret Life of Words" and "Elegy". Despite the great cast, director and cinematography, the flawed plot does not help the performances. Why Fay's doppelganger decides to haunt her after so many years? How her father could know that Fay should not look at her face? Why Fay insisted to meet her doppelganger after her father's advice? The conclusion is totally predictable. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Meu Outro Eu" ("My other Me")
