The Two Faces of January Thriller
Screenwriter Hossein Amini ("The Wings of the Dove," "Drive") makes a stylish directing debut with this sleek thriller set in Greece and Istanbul, 1962, and adapted from a novel by Patricia Highsmith ("The Talented Mr. Ripley"). "The Two Faces of January" centers on a wealthy American couple (Viggo Mortensen) and (Kristen Dunst) on a tour of Greece. There they meet a con-artist (Oscar Isaac) who becomes entranced with the couple's wealth and beauty. A sudden accident puts all three in danger as they set off through Greece and the trio's allegiance is put to the test.
