Inspired by a true story, Amnesia tells the story of a young man (Dusan Dukic) who wakes up on a Montreal street knowing nothing about himself, except that he's gay. Amnesia is superb storytelling from a seasoned gay French Canadian director, Denis Langlois (Danny in the Sky, The Escort).
A young man wakes up naked on a pallet on the street in Montreal. Who is he, what is his name? How did he get here? The only thing he seems to remember is that he's gay. And so begins one of the most compelling gay-themed mysteries we’ve seen. Based on a true story, this young man has been through some trauma that caused his memory loss -- or is he an imposter avoiding the law in some way? Filmmaker Denis Langlois (The Escort, Danny in the Sky) keeps us on the edge of our seats and guessing throughout this amazing tale. Under truth serum he comes to the conclusion that his name is James Brighton and that he's from Morristown, NJ. A local gay group has a volunteer come forward to house him. As time goes on he develops his own gay family in Montreal, still holding out hope that he’ll remember who he is. After appearing on a "Real News" show, his family contacts him -- or are they truly his family? Opening up doors of memory, consciousness and morality, Amnesia is truly a remarkable film.
