GAL APPROVED Weekend: McAvoy’s Put Under In Trance; Gossip Girl Alum’s New Movie & Win This!By DIVAGALS | April 5, 2013 | Entertainment, Gal Approved
SEE. I wanted to see the new psychological thriller Trance because it stars one of my favorite actors James McAvoy. The Scottish native plays Simon, an art dealer who gets involved with a band of thieves to swipe a super expensive painting from his auction house. Unfortunately for him, he hides it ΓÇô and then gets a major bump on the noggin and forgets where it’s stashed. His cronies don’t take to that too kindly (cue in gruesome ways criminals torture people). They invest in a hypnotist, Elizabeth (Rosario Dawson), to help Simon go under and regain his memories, and that’s when things really start to get weird. Because saying too much would give this thrill ride away, my only advice is to stick through the muddled middle ΓÇô it will all become clear as the movie reaches its climax. Be prepared to see a whole lot of Rosario. And don’t worry, director Danny Boyle is equal opportunity when it comes to nude scenes, so you’ll get a bit of the boys too. Yes, there is gratuitous violence of all kinds, so brace yourself for that. All in all, it’s a movie that will make you go “hmmm” at the end ΓÇô then want to watch it again to see if you missed anything the first time around. Trance opens today.
