You Have to Admit, It Would Be Kinda Cool: Complete Unknown

CU

You are who you say you are. Think about that for a minute. What do any of us know about each other beyond that? You meet a new person, she tells you about herself, and, with no real reason to disbelieve her, you accept what she says. She’s a housewife, a lawyer, a teacher, an artist — she is who she says she is. Unless … she’s playing games. Why would she change her identity? Is she hiding from someone or something? Is she an undercover agent or a relocated criminal — is she psychotic? What if she ran into someone she knew in a previous … identity?

What’s this, you say? An original film, I say. Written and directed by Joshua Marston (Maria Full of Grace, The Forgiveness of Blood), his first English-language feature stars Rachel Weisz and Michael Shannon: she as an old flame, mysteriously returned to his life. He, now married, wants to follow her, but why? We want to follow her because we need to know.

    I love identity stuff. What do we really know about anyone? The people in our Real Lives or the people on the Internet. This looks great.
    (It’s like that comic– *On the Internet, no one knows you’re a dog.*. I personally am an octopus.)
