Trailer: Mark Strong and Taissa Farmiga in Mind-Entering, “ANNA”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
ANNA has the promise of a pulpy thriller about a possible teen murderess, a detective that can enter her mind and a cast that includes Mark Strong, Taissa Farmiga, Brian Cox and Noah Taylor. I’m trying to figure out what else exactly we need to know.
Produced by Jaume Collet-Serra (ORPHAN, NON-STOP), ANNA (aka Mindscape) is the feature debut of Jorge Dorado and plants a great cast in a tale of murder and seeming psychic power. Mark Strong plays the amazingly-named John Washington, a non-revolutionary-era “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 (AMERICAN HORROR STORY), 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?”
ANNA is in theaters June 6th. Find the trailer and poster, below.
