"We don't know who me is."- more a case of rediscovery inevitably gone bad than insecurity- and how not to cope with loss.

First off, I don't see any problems with the pacing, the visuals, or the music in the movie. All were fine and in fact, although the ending felt a bit rushed, it was not just meaningful but also artistic without being pretentious.

I agree, however, with some of the reviewers that it more falls into the drama genre than thriller. I have a brief moment of disappointment with good flicks that are categorized wrong, but that's about it.

Now... My character analysis is somewhere between the spectrum of views from the reviewers.

The movie does not clearly hint at any possibility that Clarke's character specifically went out to find someone permanently vulnerable to marry, due to a handicap. When you extrapolate the characters into the past, perhaps some of the audience would say that is very likely. Understandably so, as there are many people who actually feel so insecure as to purposely marry totally dependent partners.

The problem in the movie is, though, Lively's character doesn't waste time to confirm her husband's fears, and denies it when confronted.

It would be only natural for her to change her looks following the operation- she had to see herself first to know what she wanted to look like.

That was not what troubled the husband. It could have been, in other cases, but the movie tells us that it is not.

What critically troubled the husband was that scene on the train that he kept replaying, closing up on his wife's face as she thought no one was watching.

Also the realizations: 1. she lied about the man in the park 2. she said she was pregnant, without knowing her husband was sterile.

Whereas he could confront her and file a divorce or give her a second chance, the husband hatched a wicked plan to have her blind self back, failing to accept the fact that newly gained eyesight would make one discover more about oneself and have preferences with things one had no way of deciding before. As Gina said: "we don't know who me is." This was the problem. The husband could only get to know this new wife as fast as she could get to know more of herself. This problem was not mutually shared, as the wife had understandably welcomed the changes with delight.

Said another way, changes happen faster than the husband is able to let sink in and upon realizing that he is losing his wife, he tries to reverse the process back to when he knows she would need him, therefore would keep him, as if he can make her unsee things, rewind time. So he tries to actually blind her. That is how mentally sick he has become.

As the wife is singing this song on stage from a time when she was blind and all she saw was him, and staring straight in his eyes all the time... there's this silent conversation via exchanges of gazes of how she used to love him, how she could still see and knew what he had been up to, and how he ruined it all. He gets the messages, walks out on her and jumps in his car, and, absorbed in a very emotionally intense session of self-introspection and judgment while driving, ends up in a fatal accident.

A life ends as a new one begins. Things move on, one way or another. If he had thought about it before the operation he could prepare and therefore grant himself "the serenity to accept the things he cannot change".

I loved almost everything about the movie without the need to root for either of these two characters who had become very realistically unlikable as the movie proceeded. I respect this in a movie. A cold but sincere little flick.

A thoughtful, well directed, beautifully shot and acted 'sort of' thriller

I went into this film blind (pun intended) not really knowing much about it at all, but needing something 'romantic' from Netlix for a Saturday afternoon. Blake Lively is always interesting to me whether in engaging dramas like Age of Adeline or in engaging nonsense such as The Shallows.

It's immediately interesting and the opening images arresting: a kaleidoscope of bodies, a couple in the throes of passion, silken sheets and milky skies - beautifully blended. The images make sense when we discover that Lively's character Gina, is blind - was blinded in a car accident that killed her parents. Her husband, James, dotes on her, caters for her every need, spoils her - he seems quietly, perhaps subconsciously grateful for the position of power their situation puts him in.

The first 30 minutes knits together the confusion and frustration of Gina's everyday life perfectly sometimes taking us behind her eyes to experience the lights and the shapes that Gina can almost see as we follow her to the pool, teaching guitar, and to the doctors where she is told that a transplant is possible.

The mood shifts dramatically when Gina regains partial sight. She gets a new lease of life. She soaks everything in. She wants to experience everything she's been missing. Gina is ecstatic in her new found sense - on a trip to Spain to visit her sister, she begins to shrug off the old Gina and starts to transform, sexing up her wardrobe, starting to wear makeup, almost purposefully seeking out moments to excite and arouse her. James starts to think that he won't be enough for her and indeed the things she took for granted are not what she expected and not necessarily what she wants.

Whilst what follows is definitely psychological, and in part thrilling, this is very much a study of a relationship on the precipice and the extremes we'll go to when cornered or desperate. Gina realises that life has options, and James will do anything he can to try and limit them, to salvage what they have.

I found this film incredibly satisfying. I found the union of Gina and James, the transition to a new way of living, Gina's effervescence for her new life and James's acute anxiety that he is about to lose everything really believable. There's a real tension and it's all played beautifully and naturally. There's a moment (a millisecond) near the end where it veers towards melodrama, and even though not the romantic comedy I was looking for, was a film I'm definitely glad I've seen.

Insecure man needs a handicapped women to feel justified

Seems like half of the reviewers here failed to notice, that this movie was not about the feminist propaganda or the egoistic lifestyle of a 21s century women pursuing their own dreams and desires, but about the realization that the only reason this couples relationship worked was because Gina was in a very vulnerable state, handicapped, totally relying on her husband taking care of her 24/7, and the sad realization that her husband would do anything to get her back to that vulnerable state again, by changing her eyedrops, so that she would go blind again, and by taking the dog away in a very cruel way tying her to a tree, just so that she couldn't go outside anymore to have some fun. I found this deep story of the film totally disgusting, but at the same time utterly beautiful, because this is reality, relationships and marriages are often full of egoistic desires, and oppressions, lies and manipulations...even though I sympathize with the female character Gina I found her behavior totally disgusting as well, she obviously got knocked up by that other dude, since her husband was told by the doctor that he couldn't father a child. Ally by all, wonderful movie, with a wonderful message, but I would rather call it a drama instead of a thriller.
