From ACADEMY AWARD®-Winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 2008) comes a thrilling, action-packed brain-twister! After a blow to the head during his attempted robbery of a $27 million Goya painting, Simon (James McAvoy, X-Men: First Class), awakens to find that the painting – and his memory – are missing. As the plot twists, reality and dream collide in this non-stop thriller.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The only perceptible purpose of the story is to pay homage to Dawson, and rightly so; her character is a rare blend of she-devil and sculptured deity, rising above the follies of mere men. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Apr 8, 2013

Rotten: For a while, "Trance" had me guessing, and more or less hooked. Then the violence, motivations, double-crosses and fantasy/reality tangles became tedious. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Apr 11, 2013

Fresh: For much of the film ... Boyle's innate flair as a dramatist and conjurer keeps one clamped to the armrests. – John Anderson, Newsday, Apr 11, 2013

Fresh: It's an ingeniously built automaton, sexy as hell, and devoid of a heart. – Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, Apr 11, 2013

One of Danny Boyle's best!!

I love Danny Boyle, and this blew me out of the water. Trance vs. Sunshine for my number one spot...


This was superb all the way through. Gripping from the beginning and and excellent right to the end. Very good movie.

Mind Blowing

This moving COMPLETELY blows my mind. The whole entire movie, I thought I knew exactly what was happneing/ going to happen. It's 10x more surprising than Shutter Island. The last 10 minutes of the movie gave me shivers. I will watch it over and over and over and over. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
