Since Steven Soderburgh has come out of self imposed retirement (we knew it wouldn’t last) he’s returned to making some intriguing films starting with last years ‘Logan Lucky’ with a distinctly un-Bond like Daniel Craig.
What sets this film apart is that its Soderburgh’s first horror film but also it’s the first A list director to shoot the entire film on an iphone.
A young woman (Claire Foy) leaves her hometown to escape a troubled past and begin a new job. But when she is involuntarily committed to a mental institution she is confronted by her greatest fear — but is it real or just her delusion? With seemingly no-one ready to believe her and the authorities unable or unwilling to help, she must confront her fears head on. With twisting perspectives and a shocking narrative, Unsane asks questions about our perception of reality, our survival instinct and the system that is supposed to take care of us.
Film opens in the UK on March 23rd
