“Tell-Tale” is supposed to be a contemporary adaptation of the Edgar Allen Poe short story “The Tell-Tale Heart”, but let’s face it, it’s probably not gonna come all that close. Instead of a murderer being haunted by his victim’s heart, “Tell-Tale” has a man getting a heart transplant who then decides to investigate the murder of the heart’s previous owner. I would have just said Thanks and gone home myself, but hey, I’m easy that way.
A man’s newly transplanted heart leads him on a dangerous journey to find out who murdered its donor.
Starring Josh Lucas, Lena Headey, Brian Cox, Beatrice Miller, Dallas Roberts, Ulrich Thomsen, and Pablo Schreiber. Michael Cuesta directs.
