Watson and one of the gripping thrillers to look forward to.  Christine, played by Nicole kidman, wakes up every day remembering nothing of the life she leads. every morning she rediscovers her life anew, thanks to the photographs and the help of her husband… all until she starts leading a diary, as advised by her secret doctor the husband knows nothing about. that’s when the truth about her accident begins to unfold.  A stellar cast and a five-star novel.
