From ACADEMY AWARD®-Winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 2008) comes a thrilling, action-packed brain-twister! After a blow to the head during his attempted robbery of a $27 million Goya painting, Simon (James McAvoy, X-Men: First Class), awakens to find that the painting – and his memory – are missing. As the plot twists, reality and dream collide in this non-stop thriller.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: As stylish as ever, director Danny Boyle seems to be treading water with the surprisingly thinly written Trance -- but for fans of Boyle's work, it should still prove a trippily entertaining distraction.

Common Sense Says
Mind-bending thriller is excessive and violent but artful.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Trance is, like director Danny Boyle's earlier films Trainspotting and 28 Days Later, not for younger viewers. Although it has drawn comparisons to Inception and Memento, this thriller has more sex (including sexual full-frontal nudity) and grisly violence (torture, heads blown up, an innocent person killed) than either of those films. The language is standard for an R-rated movie ("f--k," "s--t," "assh--e"), but it's the frank sex scenes and the cringe-inducing violence (which also includes domestic abuse) throughout that makes this one for very mature teens and adults only.
