IMDB Trailer



Although the concept behind this movie was interesting and wonderful, the execution was lacking.

Nick Bannister has a machine that can extract memories, allowing you to relive them as many times as you want. Mae has lost her keys and comes to Nick to help her find them. of course Nick falls in love with Mae who suddenly disappears one day.

I should have known when Mae decided to use this incredible technology to find her keys off all things, when every other client wanted to relive an extremely intimate memory, that something janky was up. He character was wonderfully acted and I loved how things came together at the end, it was getting there that was the problem.

The story was slow and painful until the last half hour or so when Nick starts piecing things together. If you like slow, methodical mysteries, then this movie is just what you need.
