THE EYE (2008) Movie Review

THE EYE (2008)

Sydney Wells, who has been blind since the age of five, is now an accomplished violinist and living a life of independence in Los Angeles.

With the surgery a success, Sydney begins to adapt to using her newly restored sense with the help of Dr. Paul Faulkner and his tough-love approach to therapy. But Sydney’s return the world of the seeing is not without its problems, as Sydney begins to have visions of people and places she swears are not real.
