Forget Me Not

Alexander Holt, Lance Roehrig (2009)

15 Certificate


Our Score
Singer/songwriter Tobias Menzies attempts suicide but is interrupted by a call from the bar worker (Genevieve O'Reilly) who had taken a shine to him earlier that evening. The pair are thrown together for a night of conversation, reflection and revelation, which culminates in a visit to O'Reilly's beloved grandmother (Gemma Jones) the following morning. What at first glance seems like a London-set Before Sunrise - offering the viewer a stunning guided tour of the city - turns out to be a moving and convincingly acted study of Alzheimer's and its consequences, both for sufferers and those who love them. Menzies is entirely believable as the disaffected musician unable to commit, and O'Reilly is equally mesmerising, despite the occasional melodramatic detour in the script. Yet it's the extraordinary Jones who really touches the soul. A slow-burner, but worthy of your patience.


A musician comes to the aid of a barmaid being accosted by a drunk. Together they go on a journey around London and begin to fall in love, but as the night draws to a close, a secret threatens to bring their fledgling relationship to an end before it has begun. Romantic drama, with Tobias Menzies and Genevieve O'Reilly.
