As Tom (Michael Shannon) celebrates his birthday with a group of close friends in Brooklyn, he is startled to see a woman from his distant past at the party. Jenny - or Alice (Rachel Weisz), as she now calls herself - first denies even knowing Tom, but as the evening progresses, she reveals a shocking secret. After disappearing from Tom's life 20 years earlier, she began to reinvent herself every few years, taking on a new name, a new career and a new life each time. After giving Tom a glimpse of what life could be like if he lets go of the safety and security he has so carefully created, Alice asks him to make a choice that will change everything.
Complete Waste of Time
- Complete Unknown review by ST
Despite its potentially interesting premise - a man meets a woman he knew fifteen years ago, but who has since changed identities several times - this film went absolutely nowhere. Given the premise and the first fifteen minutes, it seemed like it was going to be interesting, but this is a false dawn and it turns out to be one of the most pointless and boring films I have ever watched. Do not fall for the intriguing blurb!
