The first image from Alejandro Amenábar‘s drama Regression has been released online. The movie takes place in Minnesota in 1990, and stars Ethan Hawke as a detective who investigates the case of a young woman (Emma Watson) who accuses her father (David Dencik) of an “unspeakable crime”. The investigation eventually leads to uncovering a “horrifying nationwide mystery.” I’m a big fan of Amenábar’s previous films The Others and The Sea Inside, and it looks like he has another powerful story here. Principal photography has wrapped, so I wonder if there’s a chance we’ll see this one on the fall festival circuit.
Hit the jump to check out the Regression image. The film also stars David Thewlis, Dale Dickey, Lothaire Bluteau, and Devon Bostick.
