“With a terrific lead performance from Rachel Weisz, slick visuals, and a captivating story that pivots in some unexpected ways, Complete Unknown is shrewd filmmaking for sophisticated audiences”—Anthony Kaufman, Screen Daily. 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. With Kathy Bates and Danny Glover. R. 90 Min.
