Let’s take another look at Danny Boyle
‘s upcoming Trance
, which is set to open this Friday! Two brand new featurettes for the movie have arrived, and as usual – you’ll have a chance to hear what the leading trio has to say about the whole thing. In case you already forgot, this enigmatic thriller stars James McAvoy
, Vincent Cassel
and Rosario Dawson
directed the movie from a script written by Joe Ahearne
and John Hodge
, which revolves around McAvoy’s character – a fine art auctioneer named Simon, who becomes involved in the theft of a painting from his own auction house…
Fine art auctioneer Simon in league with a gang led by underworld boss Franck, plots the audacious theft of a masterpiece by Goya from a major public auction. When Simon double-crosses the gang during the robbery, Franck retaliates violently and knocks him unconscious.
In the aftermath of the heist, Simon sticks stubbornly – and perhaps shrewdly – to his claim that the violent trauma has left him with no memory of where he stashed the artwork. Unable to coerce the painting’s location from Simon, Franck and his associates reluctantly join forces with a charismatic hypnotherapist in a bid to get him to talk. But as they journey deeper into Simon’s jumbled psyche the boundaries between reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur and the stakes rise faster and far more dangerously than any of the players could have anticipated.
Fox Searchlight will release Trance
on April 5th, 2013.
