About this product
Blind since she was child, Emma Brody (Madeleine Stowe) experiences a miracle--a dead woman's eyes have been donated to her, allowing Emma to see again. But before she's had the opportunity to grow accustomed to her blurry vision, she witnesses a brutal murder. Working with a handsome detective (Aidan Quinn), she tries to help the police locate the murderer before the murderer locates her. Director Michael Apted (COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER and GORILLAS IN THE MIST) has always been concerned about creating stronger, more complicated female characters in mainstream films, and with BLINK he has succeeded. In more than 200 films with blind characters, blind men have danced, taken photographs, and performed rescues, while blind women have usually been terrified, hapless victims; Emma, as played by Stowe, breaks with that tradition. In her first major role after LAST OF THE MOHICANS, Stowe bristles as an independent woman who has long taken care of herself and doesn't want to be protected by the police.
