#56/100

56.  The Life Before Her Eyes-  "A woman's survivor's guilt from a Columbine-like event twenty years ago causes her present-day idyllic life to fall apart."  I LOVED THIS FILM!!!  I saw it last night and want to watch it again tonight.  The suspense leads to a perfect finale that makes you reexamine the entire film.  But I have to tell you, I noticed LOTS of folks on IMDB found this film to be dull and boring...I don't know if it's because they watched in the theater and this is more enjoyed on DVD???  Or perhaps this is a film loved by women and not men???  I'm not sure why so many folks didn't like the movie.  But I'm watching it a second time and then reading the book The Life Before Her Eyes by Laura Kasischke.  Highly recommended 8/10
