Premonition - Phil's Five Words for Films -

Premonition. Sandra Bullock plays Linda, a women who wakes up after the death of her husband, only to find him sipping coffee in the kitchen, only to wake up again to find herself at his funeral and then wake up to discover that she can stop any of it happening at all. Sound confusing? Well it is. If you think about the plot too hard, then it all begins to unravel a little and not really make much sense. Is it a premonition or has she travelled in time? What has actually taken place and what was just a dream? Is she just mad and making it all up in her head? Best not to think about it too much. The plot ends up a little confused but it is the journey rather than the destination that makes this a very watchable film. There are glimpses of Sandra Bullock at her best, something she was recently given an Oscar for. She carries the film by herself and gives a very good performance as the desperate dreamer. It’s the kind of film that leaves you with loads of questions and requires a good post-film discussion. The twisting plot will keep you watching and the after film post-mortem will be lively and dizzying. Like a colander – good at what it does but full of holes.
