Before I Go to Sleep should put you to sleep.

It's a standard mystery/thriller fare. Woman, Nicole Kidman, has selective amnesia after a horrific accident. She wakes to find a life she does not now, because it has been 10 years since then. She finds a man, her husband, next to her. He gives her instructions to what her life was and is. Now she has to know, if that is really the case.

So the story tries to make you wonder, who should she trust. Her husband? Or a psychiatrist treating her? This psychiatrist makes her video tape her daily life so that she doesn't forget. As she views the diary she seems to regain memory. Slowly, but surely details start to emerge about the day she lost her memory.

Needless to say, we find out who she is and how she lost her memory. It comes after a reveal that you knew was coming. The movie then ends on a coda that was too long, tacked on minutes did not help it making the movie any better.

I really need to forget I saw this.

2 of 5 stars.
