Mark Strong (Our Friends in the North, The Long Firm, The Guard) in his first leading role in a feature film, plays John, a mind detective paid to enter people’s memories and uncover the reality behind their alleged crimes. But what will he make of his new assignment, the brilliant but troubled teenager Anna? Played with effortless panache by one of America's more notable upcoming talents – American Horror Story's Taissa Farmiga.
As John enters her mind and becomes more involved in her sometimes brutal memories, he must decide if she is indeed the victim of unspeakable trauma or a very clever and manipulative sociopath. Produced by Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan, Unknown, Non-Stop), Mindscape is a suspenseful horror with an intriguing twist.
