American Psychological Horror-Thriller “Unsane” Featuring
Claire Foy Releases in the UAE on 19th April 2018
Dubai, April 2018 – Unsane – in cinemas across the UAE on 19th April – is a 2018 American psychological horror-thriller film shot, edited, and directed by Steven Soderbergh and written by Jonathan Bernstein and James Greer. The film stars Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Jay Pharoah, Juno Temple, Aimee Mullins, and Amy Irving.
A young woman, Sawyer Valentini, 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?
“I’ve always been a fan of psychological thrillers; in this case a young woman who has found herself in a circumstance that I think is realistic in terms of its possibilities, but pretty harrowing in terms of the reality of her confinement in an institution. Especially when she finds out that there’s somebody working there that she’d rather not come in contact with,” comments Director Steven Soderbergh.
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.
