‘Regression’ is set in Minnesota in 1990 when Detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) investigates the case of young Angela Gray (Emma Watson), who accuses her father John (David Dencik) of sexual abuse. After a long process, John admits guilt although he has no recollection of past misconduct. This results in the investigative team calling on renowned psychologist Professor Kenneth Raines (David Thewlis) to help John relive his memories so that they can solve the crime and find out if there is anything more to it. Uncovering John Gray’s regressed memories reveals a horrifying national mystery which is darker and more sinister than Angela Gray’s original accusation.
The Spanish-American thriller was directed and written by Alejandro Amenábar. It also features performances by Devon Bostick as Roy Gray, Dale Dickey as Rose Gray, and Aaron Ashmore as George Nesbitt.
Regression will be released in cinemas on the 28th of August. Take a look at the trailer below.
