I have never been a fan of Demi Moore - I didn't get her appeal and was never impressed with her acting, but interestingly she was the thing I liked best about this movie. She is quite lovely, and her voice has lost that husky quality that I used to find so grating. Her acting was natural and subtle yet effective. Unfortunately, I don't have similar positive things to say about this movie. Baldwin is his typical blow-hard self, and his transformation from a frustrated, angry, and damaged tortured writer is not believable. He is also not believable as a romantic lead. Maybe he has done one too many Trump impressions, because his appeal at this point is just - "yuck". The plot is schlocky and predictable, and the addition of the young man who initially volunteered to assist Baldwin's character only later to become his house boy/protégé was weak. Over all a pretty bad B movie with A movie pretensions. The writing was weak and the plot was often silly and superficial.
For the first half I thought this was going to be an intelligent and creative story (something that hasn't been told a thousand times already), but then it just became pedestrian predictable from that point on. A quadrangle love affair with cheating, getting caught, changing your mind and the obvious changing tit again. Making it all worse was a predictable, maudlin, everyone ends up with their new lover happily ever after ending. As far as acting Baldwin did a respectable job with his, at times overacted, blind character while Moore was "just there". Really positive reviews to some extent are fandom followers of Baldwin & Moore together with a slight inclination toward seeing Moore act.
Not far from Monte Carlo on the Côte d'Azur of Southern France lies the picturesque town of Eze. The name of Eze was one of the small details that were rolled into the combination romance and thriller called "Blind." The action of the film is triangulated around the strange relationship of a blind author and teacher of creative writing; a cruel, ruthless, and crooked entrepreneur; and the businessman's wife, who was at one point drawn into the shallow yet adrenaline-pumping lifestyle of her husband. But her world changes when she is introduced to the creative writer who has compensated for his blindness by being attentive to his other senses and to the intuitive side of his fellow human beings. At one point in the film, the blind author Bill Oakland (Alec Baldwin) recognizes the scent of the perfume of Suzanne Dutchman (Demi Moore) as Muguet Des Bois, and her reaction is significant. This is an unusual moment when someone has complimented her on one of her personal choices. The moment is especially poignant to Suzanne when she discovers that her husband Mark (Dylan McDermott) has been unfaithful to her and has given the lover the gift of Chanel No. 5. Mark probably never even knew what was Suzanne's favorite perfume. Baldwin, Moore, and McDermott are all excellent in their respective roles. The film is especially strong in the details, such as the title of Bill's next book ("Nothing Left to Win or Lose") that sums up the position he has adopted after he lost his eyesight in the auto accident that took the life of his wife. One weakness of the film was in its less-than-scintillating dialogue that was clearly a stretch for the actors to perform with credibility or even a straight face. When the jealous Mark complains to Suzanne about her relationship with Bill, he waxes poetic in suggesting that "Bill is a short story; I'm your novel." Woof! Lines like that one did not sound like they were coming from the boy from Far Rockaway who pulled himself by his bootstraps to become "Mr. Dutchman." The film was on much firmer footing with the broader strokes of character transformation, especially in the change that occurs in Suzanne. In her budding relationship with the blind author, it appears for the first time in her life that she has made contact with a person who recognizes her inner, fragile qualities and ultimately treats her as an equal, as opposed to an object. In the process, she comes to radiate the special wisps of sunlight that fall on the seascape of Eze.
It was the type of movie that revives the Christian in us all. You will pray for a twist or turn to improve the plot or pray for an end. The movie and actors failed to bring the watcher into the plot. Trying to find some shard or crumb of a plot, with withered acting from actors trying to become "reborn" as movie stars, created a painful and embarrassing viewing situation - when with accompanying guests. The casting seemed to fail this movie more than the screenplay. I just don't like being the conduit of aging actors trying to revive their careers. There is a reason why Hollywood isn't calling them, and this movie will remind you of why.
This film tells the story of a New York housewife, whose billionaire husband is detained in jail for fraud. She is sentenced to community service, and has to read to a successful but obnoxious author who turned blind from a traffic accident. I think the title "Blind" doesn't really do the film justice, because the story is not really about blindness. Instead, it is a good romance film, with one character who happens to be blind. Alec Baldwin's character may be obnoxious, but somehow he is charming and attracts sympathy. His interaction and the blossoming friendship with Suzanne is well built up and portrayed. The scenery of the seaside town in the final scene is breath taking as well! I liked watching it.
