Love is blind. Because if you can see your spouse, you’ll probably end up hating them… or something like that. That’s how I’m choosing to interpret the new trailer for All I See Is You, the upcoming psychological drama from Monster’s Ball and World War Z director Marc Forster. The film stars Blake Lively as Gina, a blind woman in an “ideal marriage” with her husband (Jason Clarke), who she depends on to be her eyes in the world. But when Gina has a corneal transplant and regains her sight, the trust between them starts to wither away as Gina starts to have her own views of the world, and when she starts losing her sight once again, the truth about their relationship takes on new clarity.
All I See Is You also stars Yvonne Strahovski, Danny Huston, Ahna O’Reilly and Wes Chatham. Open Road will release the film in theaters on October 27. Watch the new trailer below and for more on the film check out Steve’s TIFF interview with Forster from last year.
Here’s the official synopsis for All I See Is You:
“Gina (Blake Lively) and husband James (Jason Clarke) have an almost perfect marriage. After being blinded as a child in a nearly fatal car crash that claimed her parent’s lives, Gina depends on James to be her eyes—a dependence that appears to solidify their passionate relationship. She sees her world in her own vivid imagination with help from James’ descriptions. Despite her disability, the two enjoy a colorful existence in Bangkok, Thailand where James works in insurance and Gina explores life in a foreign country. It seems the only real hardship this loving couple faces is difficulty conceiving a child but when Gina is given the opportunity to have a corneal transplant and regains her vision, their life and relationship are upended. Gina now sees the world with a new sense of wonder and independence which James finds threatening. It is only when Gina suddenly begins to lose her sight again that she finally realizes the disturbing reality of their marriage and their lives.”
