Steven Soderbergh came back from his self-imposed retirement last year with Logan Lucky. Now he’s lining up his next movie, and this time he’s decided that rather than expensive cameras, he was going to shoot the entire thing on an iPhone. He’s not the first to do it as other movies, most notably the award-winning Tangerine, have done it before, but the Ocean’s 11 helmer is certainly the highest profile director to go down that route.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘UNSANE is directed by Academy Award nominated director Steven Soderbergh (Logan Lucky, Erin Brockovich), stars Claire Foy (The Crown), Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project), Jay Pharoah (Ride Along), Juno Temple (Atonement), Aimee Mullins (Stranger Things) and Amy Irving (Traffic).
‘A young woman leaves her hometown to escape a troubled past and begin a new job. But when she is involuntarily committed to a mental institution she is confronted by her greatest fear — but is it real or just her delusion? With seemingly no-one ready to believe her and the authorities unable or unwilling to help, she must confront her fears head on. With twisting perspectives and a shocking narrative, Unsane asks questions about our perception of reality, our survival instinct and the system that is supposed to take care of us.’
The movie hits UK cinemas on March 23rd. Take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
