QUICK TAKE:
Romantic Drama: A car accident gives a young wife severe memory loss, which means her husband has to win her heart all over again.
PLOT:
Leo (CHANNING TATUM) and Paige (RACHEL McADAMS) are a young husband and wife living in Chicago. They are head over heels in love with each other. He owns a recording studio and she is an up-and-coming sculptor and artist. On the way home from the movies one wintry night, a snow plow barrels into their stopped car from behind, sending Paige through the windshield. She is in a coma for days and awakes to severe memory loss. She can't remember her life with Leo.

She does, however, remember her years before giving up law school; moving from the suburbs to the city; and becoming estranged from her father, Bill (SAM NEILL); mother, Rita (JESSICA LANGE); and sister, Gwen (JESSICA McNAMEE). They re-enter her life and try to take control of her recovery, urging her to move back home with them after five years of not speaking. Leo insists she come home with him and try to fill in what is still missing - a strategy her physician, Dr. Fishman (WENDY CREWSON), agrees with.

Nothing is familiar to Paige back in Chicago, and she soon finds herself drawn to what she knows. Even worse for Leo, she finds herself attracted to Jeremy (SCOTT SPEEDMAN), her former fiancÚ who she broke up with shortly before their wedding years earlier. Growing further apart, Leo decides to woo his wife all over again in an effort to win her heart and save their marriage.

    I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

    I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

    I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

    Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

    I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
