From Oscar-winning British director Danny Boyle, this is an ambitious, high-concept psychological thriller. Co-written by Ireland’s Joe Ahearne and Scottish screenwriter John Hodge, the crime-drama features outstanding performances from Scottish actor James McAvoy and the UK’s Danny Sapani. Co-produced by British companies Cloud Eight Films, Decibel Films and Ingenious Media.





Simon (James McAvoy), a young art expert, is encouraged to help ruthless criminal Franck (Vincent Cassel) to steal a Goya painting, but when he suffers a head injury during the heist, Simon has no recollection of where he hid the artwork. When physical punishment fails to provide answers, Franck hires a hypnotherapist (Rosario Dawson) to get to the bottom of the mystery, as the lines between truth and deceit start to blur.
