Going in a much different direction from his Oscar-winning "Slumdog Millionaire,:"director Danny Boyle weaves an intriguing tale with multiple mysteries. James McAvoy plays an auctioneer who conspires with a criminal (Vincent Cassel) to steal a highly valuable painting ... but an attempted betrayal sparks the crook to a violent act that erases the auctioneer's memory, including the painting's location.

A hypnotherapist (Rosario Dawson) is then brought in. Screenwriter John Hodge also worked with Boyle on "Trainspotting" and "Shallow Grave." DVD extras: theatrical trailer; four "making-of" documentaries. *** (R: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
