Tribeca Review: See For Me (2021)

When blind former skier Sophie cat-sits in a secluded mansion, three thieves invade for the hidden safe. Sophie’s only defense is army veteran Kelly. Kelly helps Sophie defend herself against the invaders and survive.

See For Me was the first film I saw at the Tribeca Film Festival and it was definitely a very strong start to it, the film uses a very interesting premise that only makes it better and authentic by having disability representation (Skylar Davenport who is actually blind) it’s truly an incredible thing to see, on top of that it’s one of the best home invasion movies in quite sometime. A lot of problems I have with the home invasion genre is a lot of it is more less the same thing, See For Me changes things up quite a bit, it gives development to Sophie (the main character) and keeps things as grounded as possible. Davenport is what truly makes this film shine, they give such a fantastic performance that really sticks with you. The atmosphere is thrilling it keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the film. The cinematography combined with the setting and filming is another huge highlight of the film, the absolute best parts are when the house is dark with very few lights it creates something beautiful and feels like a painting almost! See For Me is a film I can definitely see a lot of people absolutely loving and rightfully so, it’s a blast of fun and at the same time a fantastic film!

10/10 A+
