Out of Sight

An intelligent, well-acted, but familiar coming-of-age story from Israeli, about a young blind woman (Tali Sharon) called home from her studies in the U.S. after her cousin commits suicide. They were bosom buddies and grew up under the same roof, but after the heroine starts poking around she realizes that her blindness has been figurative as well as literal. A flashback 20 minutes into the movie gives away the cousin's dark secret, though the blind protagonist doesn't figure it out for another 40—a fatal error on the part of director Daniel Syrkin, permitting us a sense of superiority that inhibits both empathy and suspense. Sometimes the viewer is the one best kept in the dark. 86 min.
