Movie Review: “Blind” Is Slow And Tedious

“While the cast gave stellar performances with the material they were given, the movie felt stale and moved at a snail's pace through the plot.”


 

A novelist blinded in a car crash which killed his wife rediscovers his passion for both life and writing when he embarks on an affair with the neglected wife of an indicted businessman.

“Blind,” a 2017 drama directed by Michael Mailer, has a star-studded cast but little substance. The story follows Suzanne Dutchman (Demi Moore) as she struggles with being a neglected wife to a man accused of fraud. As part of her community service for her husband’s crimes, she is paired with a blind man, Bill (Alec Baldwin) and the two help each other rediscover life and what it’s worth.

While the cast gave stellar performances with the material they were given, the movie felt stale and moved at a snail’s pace through the plot. There were no surprises or intrigue, and the outcome is rather obvious throughout the entire movie.

It was a beautifully shot movie though, and the acting choices were spot on, but even that was not enough to make me care enough about the characters. The lackluster script should have just been left on the cutting room floor.
