From the creators of the film Orphan comes the new thriller from director Jorge Dorado, Anna. Set to hit theaters on June 6th we have some stills and a trailer for this pulsating thriller. Anna stars Mark Strong, Taissa Farmiga, and Brian Cox.
Leading man Mark Strong plays John Washington, a detective with the unique ability to enter people’s minds and memories (presumably to help people recall event details pertinent to solving cases). Washington takes on the case of a troubled teenage girl named Anna, played by up-and-coming young actress Taissa Farmiga, who is accused of an attempted triple homicide. To uncover the mystery surrounding Anna and her story, Washington will enter her mind and try to find out the truth: is Anna capable of killing, or is there something hidden in her memories that shows otherwise?
With an amazing cast and a difficult concept Anna feels like Inception gone wrong. It’s nice to see Taissa Farmiga outside of American Horror Story. She has a bright future in films and looks like she will do well in this role. Playing opposite a vet like Mark Strong will show the range she has. It really looks like a compelling film and one that will do well with audiences. Anna is set to get a limited theater run but should be available at home soon after. It is being distributed courtesy of Vertical Entertainment. This slow burning thriller may be one of the most talked about films of 2014 but we will have to see. Look for more on Anna soon as we cover this film all the way up to its release.
