Sophie,is a visually impaired former skier. She needs to rely on Kelly (played by: Jessica Parker Kennedy from The Flash, Supergirl, Black Sails, and Smallville), an army veteran living across the country, to be her eyes and help her fight back against the dangerous criminals!!!!
See for Me starts out a little slow at first but it’s definitely worth the wait. The script gives a solid character build up plus the tension during the final act is intense. This is one of the better independent suspense thrillers in recent years. It’s set up really smart with one single location for the most part during the production. The house is more like one of the main characters in See for Me rather than your typical visual spot with no value. Excellent production design and a great score increase the quality here. Skyler Davenport looks great here but she’s more than eye candy in this low budget thriller. She puts the entire feature on her back and she gives an amazing performance as a woman trying to survive a nightmare situation while being blind. The supporting cast was better than expected in this. Laura Vandervoort has a cameo in this as the house owner. Jessica Parker Kennedy plays a vet with a troubled past looking for redemption. Kim Coates steals the show during the final act as the vicious leader of the thieves. He has always been a great villain and this one was no different. See for Me really picks up after it’s character development for Sophie. I love the home invasion sub-genre and this is a nice entry, it’s loaded with all kinds of thrills and chills. RECOMMENDED!!!!
