Blindness

Thriller Drama Mystery


 

A doctor's wife becomes the only person with the ability to see in a town where everyone is struck with a mysterious case of sudden blindness.

This allegorical film depicts societal collapse, triggered by mass loss of sight, accompanied by the descent into ugly degradation as people struggle against each other for survival. Filmed with a starkness that provides a sense of the white fog which precedes the blindness, and displaying a fiercely committed performance from the lead actress, this movie is a challenging experience which is certain to stimulate both thought and conversation afterwards.
