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

  • There's a disjointed beauty in this visualisation of a man struggling to recollect the facts of his life; a lot of power in the fight to rebuild the link between brain and location.

  • 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.

  • I honestly can't remember when I last saw a happier screen couple.

    Nov 9, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Well-meaning, but better suited to an experimental short film than a feature.

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.
