Movie Info

The celebrated lyricist, Edwyn Collins could only say two phrases after waking up: 'Grace Maxwell' and 'The Possibilities Are Endless'. This is the incredible story of Collins, a songwriter who had the contents of his mind effectively deleted after experiencing a stroke. Placed inside Edwyn's mind, we embark on a remarkable journey from the brink of death back to language, music, life and love. With the help of his wife Grace, Edwyn submerges himself in a landscape of memories, as he tries to unlock the story of his past. More than a story of determination against all odds; it is an intimate and life-affirming tale of rediscovery.(C) Official Site

Lovelace and Hall, however, bring out the magic in the most mundane of moments, attuned to how important all the little moments that Collins struggles to take back in his mind's possession are what life is all about.

Well-meaning, but better suited to an experimental short film than a feature.

This sensitive portrait builds towards an uplifting conclusion, where, despite his tremendous setback, Collins is seen moving ever forward - albeit less sure-footed than before - and with definite purpose.

Audience Reviews for The Possibilities Are Endless


A meaningful discussion of mental issues is never a bad tale for a film but in the hands of an inexperienced film maker, it can become a bit of a mess. This appears to be exactly what happened here.
