Kevin is a photographer who `does women mostly', he works in his own studio with one assistant - Jamie. He seems to be unlucky in love and so has a thing whereby he asks every one of them out - normally to the movies. Most of them - understandably - say no. He is also haunted by the tragic death of his sister when he was a young boy and can not somehow reconcile that he is not somehow culpable in her death.

He spends time telling us of the ways he has used to `forget' the many women he has been on dates with and at first this was sort of endearing, but as the film develops you will see the veil of innocence slowly slipping to reveal a much more questionable form of amnesia. Oh and Jamie is madly in love with him too.

This has been described a `genre defying' by a few commentators, but it is probably best seen as a film of two or even three parts. The innocence , the questioning and the truth and that is where it becomes much more chilling and gets to the foundation or the whole raison d'être of the movie. It is well acted and Christopher Denham as Kevin is particularly convincing. I think where it falls down is the slow reveal; so as that in the beginning you are not sure what is going on and aside from feeling sorry for Kevin you are left pretty much unengaged and whilst this may have been a necessary build up for the film makers it probably could have been handled better.

Still I found this to be a very good watch, it did take its time though and I think I was non plussed for at least half and then hooked for the last half hour or so - so whilst some detractors may have been harsh they do still have a point - I, however remain pleased to have seen it.

I'm a fan of Film Movement and their award winning films. Film Movement has launched a new brand, Ram Releasing, that will be showcasing films of a different genre - thrillers, suspense, even horror films. And that's right up my alley - I love scary films. One of their first releases is Forgetting the Girl from director Nate Taylor.

The film opens with Kevin Wolfe filming a 'if you see this...' talk. Kevin is a photographer specializing in head shots. He asks out every woman whose portrait he takes. And most say no. The few that do say yes rarely say yes a second time. And it those women that Kevin wants to forget. To forget he engages in activities such as a shopping spree or joining the gym. The one person he can't remember and doesn't want to forget is his sister, who drowned when they were both children.

Spoilers below.

I thought Christopher Denham did a good job in the role of Kevin. He presents as an affable young man with a ready smile for those whose attention he wants. But there's something off about him. His sense of desperation and obsessiveness isn't far beneath the surface. And something else is behind that glib exterior as well. Lindsay Beamish is Jamie, his suicidal make-up artist, who is infatuated with Kevin. She too turned in a good performance. There are a few other characters as well. Kevin's grandmother Ruby is there to act a historical record of Kevin's past. Jamie's sponsor seemed awkward and seemed to only be there to underscore Jamie's fragile state. (The camping trip was ridiculous) And the creepy, porn watching landlord? A very obvious red herring. Although I must say, his brief role was frightening - especially in the elevator with one of Kevin's clients.

1.0 out of 5 stars Reviews may not be accurate - CAUTION! 3 Oct. 2013
By Island Girl7777 - Published on Amazon.com
I take writing reviews very seriously and my primary goal is to give other movie buffs an honest opinion of what I liked and what I didn't like. As I read through the reviews of this movie, I'm amazed at the ALL 5 STAR ratings - I've never seen a movie with a solid 5, have you? Curious? Me too. I looked at every review on the first screen for the movie Forgetting the Girl and found EVERY ONE OF THEM had only 1 review "under their belt". Which one? Forgetting the Girl. Although well-written, why would all the reviewers only have this movie reviewed? Coincidence or are we being tricked into believing this is the sleeper of the year - a diamond in the rough - the be all end all movie of all time.......I doubt that is the case. Almost fell for it though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time or money: 17 Oct. 2013
By Russ - Published on Amazon.com
I agree with the others who say all the people giving this movie 5 stars must have a personal interest. It is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I feel obligated to warn others before they purchase. It's a sad, disturbing, silly movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth your time 17 Oct. 2013
By Cali Chef - Published on Amazon.com
I watched this at a friends house and could barely finish this. I've seen better writing and acting in high school student films. I agree with the previous reviewers, I think the comment boards for this film have been blanketed by shills for the film. Don't waste your time or your money on this.

1.0 out of 5 stars A total snoozefest start to finish 20 Oct. 2013

I love indy films and Film Movement have had some of the best. HOWEVER, this movie dragged on so badly, i started looking up other movies to watch while it was on. I'm only writing this review because I deeply regret shelling out 7 bucks to see it on the pre-dvd release option. I should have paid attention to the IMDB reviews, instead of some of the undoubtedly fake 5 star reviews on here. I can easily endure a slower paced film, as long as the acting is good and the story compelling. This movie was neither.
