I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the psychological thriller Locked In.
A suspicious car accident leaves Joshua and Emma’s daughter suffering from Locked-In syndrome. Josh’s world unravels when Emma blames him for the accident and becomes bitter upon discovering he had an affair with a former colleague. Ostracised from his wife and family, he eventually earns his way back in before the tragedy strikes. Helpless in the face of his daughter’s condition, Josh sinks into a deep depression. When Josh begins to receive mysterious signs from his daughter providing clues to the true cause of the accident, he wonders: Is his daughter really communicating with him, or ishe going mad?
It was a truly excelent film, highlighting a number of very interesting issues, as well as highlighting illnesses that are often viewed as taboo subjects. The plot had a number of twists along the way, and the last 5 minutes pulls together all of the clues dotted throughout the film to form one singular, fantastic storyline. The film was held together by a brilliant cast, who all performed admirably, but it was Ben Barnes who shone as the leading man. An excellent and interesting film, and one I highly recommend.
Thanks for reading.
