Heat (UK) - - The Un missables -

While we’re not al­lowed to give our ver­dict yet on this dark com­edy se­ries, we cer­tainly like the look of it. An­nie Lands­berg (Emma Stone) and Owen Mil­grim (Jonah Hill) are strangers drawn to the late stages of a mys­te­ri­ous phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal trial, in a bid to sort out their trou­bled heads. Dr James K Mantleray (Justin Th­er­oux) claims that his new treat­ment can re­pair any­thing in the mind. Ig­nor­ing the fact that Mantleray has “mad sci­en­tist” writ­ten all over him, An­nie and Owen end up in a multi-re­al­ity night­mare that, judg­ing by the trailer, plays like a mad hy­brid of In­cep­tion and Black Mir­ror.
