Movie Info

Sundowning is the portrayal of Shannon, a young woman who has lost her cognition and memory. She is content, but lacks any recollection of her past, her family, or her own identity. She lives in pacified near-isolation, sharing an apartment with Susan, her gentle yet enigmatic caregiver. Initially accepting of her relationship with Susan, Shannon eventually grows suspicious of her caretaker's control and intentions. Unable to rely on her memory and subjectivity, Shannon grapples for insight into her present condition and Susan's role in her life. The restrained pace of the film allows room to explore the dynamics of their relationship. The depth of their experience manifests through the nuances of their strict routine. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Sundowning

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

Role reversals, many mirrors, and a lesbian brushstroke indicate someone involved might have recently taken film courses on female melodrama; other thematic red herrings flip-flop, too irritatingly clichéd to recount.
