The Jacket

Rated R 2005

Committed in 1992 to an insane asylum for a murder he probably didn't commit but can't really remember, Jack Starks (Adrien Brody) is treated with an experimental technique in which he's shot full of drugs, placed in a musty old straitjacket, and shoved in a mortuary drawer for an extended period of time. And then the high concept happens: Starks wakes up in what he will later discover is 2007, standing outside a diner in a snowswept landscape. He meets a cute goth gal (Keira Knightley) who seems strangely drawn to him and connected to his past. But he can't be Starks, she insists, because Starks died not long after he was committed. His death, then, is imminent, unless he can figure out how it happened and whether there's any way to prevent it. Directed by John Maybury (Love Is the Devil), The Jacket is this year's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind -- come next year, people will be saying it was robbed of Oscar nominations.
