Love seeing Lively in distress? Good news! This time she’s playing a blind woman, who gets a new lease on life after surgery restores her vision. But from the looks of the trailer, her husband (Jason Clarke) isn’t too stoked on how this shakes up their marriage. And sexy dresses are just the start of troubles.
With cryptic visuals, an eerie clicking countdown, and a haunting kids’ cover of “God Only Knows,” All I See Is You’s trailer is satisfyingly creepy. But what exactly is going on here?
The trailer gives mood, the plot synopsis from Open Road Films adds meaning:
Gina (Blake Lively) and husband James (Jason Clarke) have an almost perfect marriage. After being blinded as a child in a nearly fatal car crash that claimed her parent’s lives, Gina depends on James to be her eyes—a dependence that appears to solidify their passionate relationship. She sees her world in her own vivid imagination with help from James’ descriptions. Despite her disability, the two enjoy a colorful existence in Bangkok, Thailand where James works in insurance and Gina explores life in a foreign country. It seems the only real hardship this loving couple faces is difficulty conceiving a child but when Gina is given the opportunity to have a corneal transplant and regains her vision, their life and relationship are upended. Gina now sees the world with a new sense of wonder and independence which James finds threatening. It is only when Gina suddenly begins to lose her sight again that she finally realizes the disturbing reality of their marriage and their lives.
Sounds like one of those mystery novels you pick up from the shelves of a rented beach house. Sure, you insist its plot is preposterous, but you ripped through it in a day, didn’t you?
All I See Is You opens October 27th.
