This is one of those movies that's not one of the best but interesting enough. The movie has a somewhat original premise: two people meet (introduced through the parents); the guy a loner and the girl is blind. Her being blind is a big enough part of the movie and the center of an interesting scene in a restaurant. Characters' personalities are shown but aren't dealt with in depth, which fits this movie.

The female co-worker's role was a bit unnecessary but not distracting. This isn't a date movie but interesting to watch with your girlfriend none the less.

The open ending is nice and unique. Do I recommend it? Yes, if you keep in mind it's a 7/10 movie.
