Vanilla sky

Threat advisory: Elevated - Significant risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

Christopher (Tom Cruise), a rich womaniser, falls in love with his best friend's (Jason Lee) girlfriend, Sofia (Penélope Cruz). The next day, he is in a car with a previous - and fiercely jealous - conquest Brenda (Cameron Diaz), who commits suicide by driving the car into a tree. Christopher survives the crash, but with his face hideously disfigured. Soon, however, his luck seems to change completely: Sofia declares her love for him and the doctors are suddenly able to rebuild his face. However, when strange and horrible things begin to happen, he starts to realise that his life has taken on a turn beyond his control.

Remade from the 1997 Spanish movie Abre los ojos (Open your eyes).
