Danny Boyle's latest film is an audacious blend of heist movie and psychological head trip.
You've seen mind-games on-screen before... But never quite like this! Boyle's energetic and twisty thriller centres on fine-art auctioneer Simon (James McAvoy), who teams up with a team of crooks led by Franck (Vincent Cassell) to steal a valued Goya painting. But when Simon betrays the gang following the heist, his life turns upside down - and inside out. After being knocked unconscious by the crims, Simon consequently suffers amnesia - meaning he can't reveal the location of where he hid the painting! Physical threats and torture yield nothing so the ruthless Franck elicits the help of hypnotherapist Elizabeth (Rosario Dawson) to get inside Simon's head and find the answers. But is everything as straightforward as it seems? As Elizabeth delves further into Simon's subconscious, even more troubling questions are revealed, blurring the line between truth and deceit, reality and dreams.
