Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell star alongside Abbie Cornish and Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the mystery thriller, Solace, which debuts across South African screens this weekend. Solace centres on a cat and mouse game played between psychic John Clancy and a new ‘Mercy’ serial killer. Clancy, played by Hopkins is brought on board by the FBI to help hunt down this serial killer with FBI agent Joe Merriweather (Morgan).
They look to tackle a case that is extremely difficult to solve due to Ambrose (Farrell) also being psychic and thus far ahead of the FBI – Clancy soon makes a connection that was never previously made, thus giving him them the advantage they never had before. Realising this killer has a ‘God-complex’ they need to work quickly to stop the ‘mercy killings’ before anyone else is hurt.
This insightful look into life and death does not disappoint- Solace is not to be missed. Out in all Ster-Kinekor cinemas 26th February 2016 – how fine is the line between cruel and kind?
