In Your Eyes 2014

     Rebecca is married to a doctor and she lives in Exeter New Hampshire.  Dylan is single, he is on probation after two years served for theft and he lives in New Mexico.  When Dylan was in elementary school, he started to move around at his desk, he was thrown from his seat and knocked out cold.  He didn’t know that he was experiencing Rebecca sled down a snowy hill and crash into a tree.  It’s been 20 years since that incident and they are starting to experience more of what the other is seeing through their eyes.  They talk to themselves but they are really talking to each other.  People look at them and think they are weird.  Dylan is fired from his job because people don't understand his behavior.  Rebecca is at a dinner party but Dylan is hit with a pool cue at a bar.  The impact knocks both of them to the floor.  Rebecca has no explanation to give for her behavior?
     Rebecca doesn’t feel like she fits in anywhere except in her experiences with Dylan.  Rebecca’s husband doesn’t understand her at all.  Dylan feels like he can’t get a break and his probation officer is just waiting to sent him back to prison.  I thought the perspective in this film was different with two people seeing and experiencing the other person in real time.  Feeling the same feelings, seeing their images in a mirror and looking at where the other one lives.  3 ½ (I liked this movie)
