Scott Reviews Joshua Marston’s Complete Unknown [Sundance 2016]

Now here’s a premise for a movie – a beautiful woman shows up to a party; a man recognizes her, but she denies his claim as to who she is. The woman, Alice, is played by Rachel Weisz. The man, Tom, by Michael Shannon. Really, honestly now…how could you lose?

She’s a research scientist; he’s a business advisor. He’s married, but his wife wants to move across the country to attend an exclusive academic program; he’s less convinced this is the right move for both of them.

And if her recognizes her and feels the need to call her out, just how close must they have been?
