Academy Award winners Robin Williams, Al Pacino and Hilary Swank star in a thriller set in the land of the midnight sun, where the mind of even a tough cop can be threatened by Insomnia. Under the glare of the permanent Alaska sun, two veteran Los Angeles police officers close in on their suspect in the murder of a teenage girl. But when officer Will Dormer (Pacino) accidentally shoots his partner, their murder suspect, reclusive novelist Walter Finch (Williams), witnesses the shooting--and blackmails Dormer. Now, as an idealistic local detective (Swank) investigates the case, and the stakes rise, Dormer's sanity begins to falter.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Driven by Pacino's performance, Insomnia is a smart and riveting psychological drama.
In the world of Christopher Nolan, memory is still as treacherous as nitroglycerin.
