First Look: Hawke and Watson in Alejandro Amenábar’s “REGRESSION”News Samuel Zimmerman
Though recent efforts have had more dramatic leanings, filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar started quite distinctively in genre with a thrilling triple feature of THESIS, OPEN YOUR EYES and THE OTHERS. This year, he’s returned with REGRESSION, starring Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson.
A period piece, REGRESSION is set in Minnesota in 1990, and “tracks detective Bruce Kenner (Hawke) as he investigates the case of young Angela (Emma Watson), who accuses her father, John Gray, (David Dencik) of an unspeakable crime. When John unexpectedly and without recollection admits his guilt, recknowned psychologist Dr. Raines (David Thewlis) is brought in to help him relive his memories. What they discover unmasks a horrifying nationwide mystery.”
