In the movie "The Long Kiss Goodnight" the main character, played by
Geena Davis, suffers from what she calls Focal Retrograde Amnesia. She
has forgotten her entire life before waking up on a beach eight years
prior to the time the film takes place.

I am wondering if some of the symptoms she displayed in the movie are
typical of people with retrograde amnesia. Specifically, she had
moments when her old before-head-injury self took over then could not
remember what she had done or said after the incident was over.

thanks for any information, tomas
