Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.11.16] thriller mystery

Sometimes don't you just wish you could hit reset on your life? Walk away from everything, take on a new name, a new identity and start a brand new life? What would happen if your new life came into close proximity to your old life? That's the conceit at the centre of Joshua Marston's Complete Unknown.

Michael Shannon stars as Tom, a guy celebrating his birthday with some friends one of whom happens to bring along Alice (Rachel Weisz). What Tom's gathered friends don't realize is that 15 years before, Tom and Alice were a couple – until Alice walked away with no explanation. Now she re-appears with a new look, a new name and pretending not to recognize him. Considering the size of the city, I assume their "chance" encounter isn't completely accidental.

I'm excited to see where Marston is headed with Complete Unknown: is it about a woman trying to rekindle a past relationship? Is Alice mentally ill? Is something nefarious going on?

We'll get answers very soon. Complete Unknown opens August 26.

Recommended Release: The Forgiveness of Blood
