The Moment is a 2013 psychological thriller starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Martin Henderson, and Alia Shawkat. The movie revolves around a woman named Lee who is a war photographer struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Lee is haunted by her experiences of covering the war in Afghanistan, which have left her emotionally shattered and detached from her loved ones.

At the beginning of the movie, Lee is seen living a quiet life in New York City, where she spends her days photographing still lifes and landscapes. Her life takes a dramatic turn when John, a former lover, resurfaces after many years. John is now married and has a daughter, and he seeks to reconnect with Lee. Initially, Lee is reluctant to see John, but she eventually agrees to meet him.

During their meeting, John tells Lee that he is suffering from a deadly disease and has decided to end his life. He asks Lee to photograph him as he prepares to die, and she reluctantly agrees. As Lee begins to take pictures, she is forced to confront her own demons and revisit the traumas that have haunted her for years. She starts to see the parallels between John's struggle with illness and her own battle with PTSD.

As the movie progresses, Lee's mental state deteriorates, and she becomes increasingly isolated and detached from reality. She starts to have vivid nightmares and hallucinations, which blur the lines between reality and imagination. Her relationship with John becomes increasingly complicated, and she begins to suspect that he has ulterior motives for asking her to photograph him.

The Moment is a tense and suspenseful movie that explores themes of trauma, loss, and the complexity of human relationships. The film is expertly directed by Jane Weinstock, who draws out powerful performances from the entire cast. Jennifer Jason Leigh is particularly outstanding as Lee, capturing the character's emotional fragility and inner turmoil with remarkable nuance.

Overall, The Moment is a gripping and thought-provoking movie that will leave viewers on the edge of their seats. It is a must-see for fans of psychological thrillers and anyone interested in exploring the human psyche.

The Moment is a 2014 thriller with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.9 and a MetaScore of 22.
