Disclosure: I received a copy of the movie below in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
My review of Perception:
I am always up for a psychological thriller. I would be lying if I didn’t say that this movie was somewhat confusing at times. But in saying that as long as you pay attention, you should be more than fine.
Daniel’s character was one that kept me guessing throughout the movie. He appeared easy to get along with but also one that was suffering from the loss of his wife.
His eviction of Nina from where she conducts her psychic business starts him on a journey after she offers him a free reading. She mentions she can see he is hurting from her loss and this is where he starts to lose himself in being able to connect with her as much as possible.
Coincidentally Nina is desperate for money to pay for her young son’s private preschool. That makes them a perfect pair, but as they become closer with both one another and with the things unknown, everything gets complicated and, if not quite scary, then at least pretty dark.
My husband and I always have the 20-30 minute rule. This rule is after that amount of time if the movie hasn’t picked up we can decide not to watch it. Although the movie starts a little slow, give it time as once it gets going you will want to watch it until the end.
The acting is great and the plot is twisty.
There is sexual content and some nudity so make sure you watch it without the children. Great for a date night in!
Make sure you watch the trailer below and let me know what you think!
