Wouldn’t it be so nice if there was a reset button?
Rachel Weisz creates one for herself in the film Complete Unknown. Not literally, as in an actual button she can press in a sci-fi kind of way. Instead, she leaves her life and starts over. And, based on her multiple looks in the below trailer, she does it more than once.
Her character, Alice Manning (at least that’s her name when we meet her), realizes there’s more than one chance for a blank slate, saying, “I could be anyone I wanted. I could live 1,000 lives.”
It’s a freeing thought, to start over, to enter a new life, but there’s one slight problem. What about the people you leave behind?
Or worse, the people in your new life realize you’re not who you say you are.
Complete Unknown, directed by Joshua Marston (Maria Full of Grace), also stars Michael Shannon, Kathy Bates and Danny Glover.
The film is set to release in the U.S. on August 26.
