This is atmospheric and gripping from the start, with Christine (Ncole Kidman) waking up next to husband Ben (Colin Firth) but with no memory of anything.

Many people meet online now (often successfully - I know of married couples who are very happy) but pretending to be someone you're not is never going to end well. A lot of people have self esteem issues, and spending time online may be attractive to those who are isolated yet lack confidence to mix in the 'real' world.
