Academy Award winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) returns to the big screen with the psychological thriller Trance. Simon (James McAvoy, X-Men First Class), a fine art auctioneer, teams up with a criminal gang to steal a Goya painting worth millions of dollars, but after suffering a blow to the head during the heist he awakens to discover he has no memory of where he hid the painting. When physical threats and torture fail to produce answers, the gang's leader Frank (Vincent Cassel, Black Swan) hires hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb (Rosario Dawson, Sin City) to delve into the darkest recesses of Simon's psyche. As Elizabeth begins to unravel Simon's broken subconscious, the lines between truth, suggestion and deceit begin to blur, the stakes rise faster and more dangerously than any of the players could have anticipated.
