Violent amnesia thriller is entertaining but unmemorable.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Before I Go to Sleep is a thriller about a woman with amnesia. It contains a few scenes of very intense violence with a man brutally beating a woman. He slaps and hits her, and uses blunt objects. Lots of blood is shown. Language is infrequent but can be very strong, with uses of "f--k" and "s--t." There's one brief but strong sex scene, with kissing, but no nudity. Other sex scenes, and an extramarital affair, are suggested. The female lead's naked bottom is shown, and some pinup centerfolds are briefly seen. The female lead smokes a cigarette in one shot. A Panasonic Lumix camera is an integral part of the plot. With its grown-up cast and grown-up situations, it seems unlikely that teens will be interested.
