I think Michael Shannon is one of the strongest male actors in the game today. No one tackles a dramatic role with more tenacity and raw emotion. pair him with the stand out Rachel Weisz and there is no script they can't master. . This is a must see for the performances alone. The story is intriguing but not without a few pitfalls. Perfect for renting or a home library though.
shape-shifting tale of the perils and pleasures of self-reinvention begins at a
dinner party, when Tom's (Michael Shannon) co-worker arrives with an intriguing
date named Alice (Rachel Weisz). Tom is convinced he knows her, but she refuses
to acknowledge their history. And when Alice makes a hasty exit, Tom sets off
after her. What follows is an all-night odyssey shared by two people, one
needing to change his life, the other questioning how to stop changing.
