Theater Thursday

It's Theater Thursday! What's Theater Thursday? Well it's a day (always Thursday) that you can pick out a movie that you love or something that you think others should watch that's out on dvd. Grab the Theater Thursday button, post about your movie choice and then come back here and link up! That way everyone will have some great movie ideas and choices going into the weekend. 

This week's featured movie is, At First Sight.
At First Sight stars Val Kilmer as visually impaired Virgil, who's been blind since the age of three. When he meets a successful Manhattan architect, Amy (Mira Sorvino) they immediately have a connection. She's at a small town retreat at meets Virgil who's her masseuse. She persuades him to undergo a very risky and new surgery that could restore his sight. He wants their relationship to work so he leaves his small town and sister behind for the big city and the possibility of his sight. 

Once in New York City, Virgil undergoes the surgery and as far as the doctors are concerned it is a success. However, by gaining his sight he's lost his ability to determine common items and his other sense of touch. He can see but he can't see. 

Amy who is very driven tries to help Virgil as much as possible but it begins to become harder than she suspected and an old flame of hers begins to try to woo her all over again. Virgil who is just really beginning to see can tell that something is wrong but doesn't know how to put all the pieces together. Then surprising news really takes hold. 

If you've never seen this 90's classic check it out! It's probably one of Val Kilmer's better movies.

I've seen this one! And even made my parents buy it for me. I think I've watched it once since they bought it, so clearly it was an awesome investment.... right...
