See for Me Ending Explained, and Review

Last Updated on January 13, 2022 by Joydeep Ghosh

Randall Okita’s See for Me is a Canadian thriller movie that was released on January 7, 2022, after its public premiere at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival on June 10, 2021.

A home-invasion thriller movie, See for Me, takes its viewers through the journey of Sophie, played by Skyler Davenport, a former Olympic skier whose promising career was cut short by her loss of vision.

A very resentful Sophie, who is also fiercely independent, does various house sitting jobs in secluded mansions to stay away from her overprotective mother.

Her resentment has turned Sophie into a kleptomaniac as well, and she steals various unnoticeable items from those villas for some quick bucks.

The One Night Ordeal of Sophie

At the beginning of the intruder drama of See for Me, we find Sophie going to house-sit the property of Debra, played by Laura Vandervoort.

Laura is a well off recently divorced woman who has taken a solo vacation, leaving her mansion under Sophie’s care.

As soon as Sophie arrives at the mansion, she finds herself accidentally locked out and uses the guiding app, “See for Me”, for assistance. Here, Sophie is connected to Kelly, played by Jessica Parker Kennedy, a former soldier who uses her skills to guide Sophie inside the mansion.

The same night, three robbers named Otis, played by George Tchortov, Dave, played by Joe Pingue, and Ernie, played by Pascal Langdale, break into the mansion looking for a secret safe to crack open. They are working under the orders of their boss Rico, played by Kim Coates, who turns out to be the divorced husband of Debra.

Very soon, Sophie and the robbers become aware of each others’ presence, and they capture Sophie. Because of the call Sophie had made to 911, Deputy Brooks, played by Emily Piggford, arrives on the scene to investigate.

Sophie tries to make a deal with the robbers, offering herself as an equal partner in their scheme in return for her help in getting rid of the police officer. The plan, however, goes awry, and the cop ends up dead.

A shocked Sophie goes into hiding and again seeks the help of Kelly.

Sophie is now in possession of Brook’s gun, and Kelly guides her around the house, making her open fire on the robbers. Though visibly uncomfortable with this act, Sophie does manage to bring down all the three intruders just before her phone dies.

By this time, Rico, too, has arrived on the scene, and after a scuffle, Sophie manages to bring him down even without Kelly’s help.

The ending of See for Me sees Sophie emerging victorious and with a new zest for life after this life-changing experience. She is seen back on the ski slopes along with Cam and her new friend Kelly.

See for Me Review: Our Take on the Film

Shot mainly inside a dark mansion, See for Me will remind you of the 1967 Audrey Hepburn classic “Wait Until Dark”.

Skyler Davenport has delivered a brilliant performance as the visually disabled Sophie in this gripping drama.

The film does not portray Sophie as a one-dimensional character and has added several layers to her personality. Despite being scared and at a disadvantage because of her visual impairment, she comes out as the strongest of the lot by the end of the movie. Her character is complex and can’t be labelled as just good or bad.

Besides Skyler Davenport, Jessica Parker Kennedy as Kelly, Laura Vandervoort as Debra, Kim Coates as Rico, and all the other actors have also portrayed their characters with great merit.

The director, Randall Okita, has also done a great job in making the film so exciting to watch.

However, the cinematography was not as impressive. The lighting is sometimes too dark for the audience to see anything, which is probably intentional but does not make it very visually appealing.

Despite a reasonably simple and overused story, See for Me is filled with suspense and twists, which keeps the viewers engrossed throughout the movie. Bound to keep the viewers on their edges, See for Me is definitely worth a watch. If we had to rate it we would probably give it a 75/100.
