My favorite movie of all time is definitely 50 First Dates. I'm not quite sure why I like it so much, but it has always been interesting to me. In the movie, the main character Lucy, played by Drew Barrymore, gets into a car accident on her father's birthday. She is brain damaged so that she remembers everything from before the crash, but cannot generate new memories, making each day seem like her father's birthday. Henry, played by Adam Sandler, meets Lucy at a restaurant that she goes to every morning. The next day, she does not remember who Henry is, causing him much confusion until he finds out that she cannot have any new memories. He has to convince her every day that they are in love, which creates an exciting movie. In the movie, Lucy is diagnosed with "Goldfield's Syndrome", which does not actually exist in real life. This diagnosis was made up by the producers, but there are actual memory loss symptoms that are similar to what Lucy experienced. The closest one is Organic Amnesia. This is caused by an accident, much like Lucy's, where the person is no longer able to create new long term memories. One difference between this real life disorder and the one in the movie is that people with Organic Amnesia forget within a few minutes, whereas Lucy is able to retain her memories for the entire day until she goes to sleep.
