“One of the things I do remember is my first day at school. There were all these weird-looking kids and I didn’t know any of them and they didn’t know me. I was scared, but after two days, we were all laughing about how scared we were. Everybody feels like you do, honey. Everybody.” Henry said.
This low budget film had Harrison Ford playing a man who had been in an accident and lost his memory to become a much better person than he was before the accident.
He became a quiet, thinking individual that saw things for what they were. I really regard this movie as a masterpiece considering from Harrison Ford’s acting ability. He took the film by storm and ran with it.
The film was directed by Mike Nichols and the screenplay was done by J.J. Abrams and the score was composed by Hans Zimmer. A beautiful score for a beautiful movie.
Here is the basic plot…An unscrupulous corporate lawyer, Henry Turner (Harrison Ford) will do whatever it takes to win a case, and treats his family with the same degree of ruthlessness. After Henry gets caught in the middle of a robbery and is shot in the head, he wakes from a coma to find that he has amnesia and can’t even remember how to do the simplest of tasks. As he recovers and relearns how to function, Henry reveals a much kinder and more thoughtful personality, much to the surprise of his family and friends.
You need to listen to this score, it is some of Hans Zimmer’s best work.
