Trance is the latest from Danny Boyle, who I’m sure you remember won an Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire, and this is the complete opposite end of the spectrum and closer to his Trainspotting roots. This stars James McAvoy, who I think is a wonderful actor as far as I’m concerned, who’s an employee of a Sotherby’s like firm that deals with art, and there’s an unfortunate robbery that goes horribly awry. Vincent Cassel, who’s a wonderful actor who played in Mesrine and won the Cesar for it, plays the head of the bad guys and Rosario Dawson plays Dr. Lamb who’s a hypnotist. I don’t want to tell you too much about this except it’s exciting, it’s convoluted, it’s a great story in the hands of a master story teller and it’s great fun, four stars.
