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

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.
