Proof is an intriguing psychological drama structured around the contradictory character of a blind photographer, a striking debut from writer-director Jocelyn Moorhouse.

Intriguing premise has a blind man required to rely on the information of others, and what if those people don’t tell the truth? Blind from birth, Martin (Hugo Weaving) never really believed his mother (Heather Mitchell) was telling him the truth about the world around him. Now in his 30s, Martin lives alone, his only company a seeing-eye dog and Celia (Genevieve Picot), the young woman who comes to clean his house and do his shopping.

She has become infatuated with Martin, but he keeps her firmly at arm’s length. Enter Andy (Russell Crowe), a guileless young man who works in an Italian restaurant Martin frequents. Celia decides to get at Martin through Andy.

Moorhouse builds up a good deal of sexual tension among the three characters, aided by a trio of excellent performances. Pic is also not without humor.
