Here at World Movies we love an alluring and stylish thriller – so we’re intrigued by the upcoming adaptation of one of Patricia Highsmith’s (author of The Talented Mr Ripley) lesser known novels, the suspenseful The Two Faces of January. Directed by Oscar-nominated-writer Hossein Amini and starring Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen and Oscar Isaac, The Two Faces of January is a slow-burning tale of moral compromises and duplicity.
Set in Europe in the early 1960s, the sundrenched story follows three Americans – a brilliant con artist, his wife and a small time Athens-based crook – who are locked together by circumstances after the con artist accidentally kills a private detective. As the trio flee from the international police across the Greek islands and through to Istanbul, it becomes clear that they bring out the very worst in each other. Their flight will involve a web of manipulation and betrayal that binds them together… in a way that only death could do them part.
The Two Faces of January is in selected theatres nationally from Thursday 19 June. To celebrate, we have 10 double in-season passes to give away for use at participating cinemas.
