I wrote about Regression quite a while ago and was keen to see it. It not only has Emma Watson, who I think is very talented, but an actor who recently climbed into my really good books with his performance in Predestination, of course that being Ethan Hawke.

The movie, directed by Alejandro Amenabar of Others fame, has taken it’s sweet time coming out and I doubt it has anything to do with post editing. No, I think if you drop  a movie with good actors (it also stars David Thewlis from Harry Potter) and you keep it very quiet, then you probably have a reason. I mean it was supposed to be out last summer! Still, it looks like it could be a decent watch, the tone is intriguing, as is the soundtrack (of the trailer at least).

However, I can pretty much guarantee I already know the premise and the end which says much… Have a watch and see what you think:

Minnesota, 1990. Detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) 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 guilt, renowned psychologist Dr. Raines (David Thewlis) is brought in to help him relive his memories and what they discover unmasks a horrifying nationwide mystery.

Yeah, doesn’t look like it’ll pick up any Oscars, mind you it’s white enough, boom! Too soon?

Regression will hit a few cinemas 5 February.

I have been an avid fan of movies ever since I discovered Santa Clause wasn't real, a day marked in my memory by my first viewing of It's a Wonderful Life, which wasn't so wonderful that day. Since then I've watched thousands of movies and even fooled my parents into putting me through uni to get a degree in the subject. I first started writing as a journalist for The South African Newspaper before moving onto communications for an NGO trying to save the planet. Unfortunately my recommendations to the CEO that we should all don rings imbued with the powers of earth, fire, wind, water and HEART went unheard. Now I pretend the end isn't nigh by hiding in movies.
