SEE FOR ME (2021) Tribeca 2021

Sophie is former skier who has lost her sight. She takes a job house sitting the mansion of a recently divorced woman who is going on vacation.  Sophie gets along with the help of friends and some on line helpers who act as her eyes. Things become complicated when during the night a group of thieves break in looking for safe full of valuables. It then becomes a battle  for survival as Sophie must fight for her life with only distant fiends to help her.

If there is any real flaw it's the insistence during the first half hour to explain how Sophie maneuvers around with her friends and helpers. There are too many discussions about being blind and what it means. Its all well and good, and we need to know some of it but we don't need a solid third of the film given over to it since it over highlights something that we as an audience already know.

On the other hand once SEE FOR ME gets going it is a very solid thrill ride. Genuine suspense is generated as we can't be sure how Sophie is going to manage to stay alive to the end. Truly I had a blast watching this and wish I had thought to make some popcorn and curl up on the couch at night. This is definitely one you will want to watch and share.

One of the most enjoyable films at Tribeca SEE FOR ME is recommended.
