The ever busy Julianne Moore, who is coming out with Atom Egoyan’s “Chloe”, also has another film coming out in 2010, this one a horror/psychological thriller called “Shelter”. In the movie, Moore plays a female forensic psychiatrist who discovers that all of one of her patient’s multiple personalities are actually murder victims. Jonathan Rhys Meyers, fresh off the stink of “From Paris with Love”, plays the patient. A trailer for the film has shown up online, so take a gander below.
Dr. Cara Jessup has made a career out of defying the notion of multiple personality disorders. In the courtroom, her views and testimonies as an expert witness against multiple personality disorders have resulted in the death sentence of more than half a dozen murderers. Cara is devoted to science, but even her husband’s horrific murder did not cause Cara to lose her faith in God. Not so for her young daughter Samantha, a committed unbeliever.
After a particularly troubling court case, Cara’s father Dr. Harding introduces her to his new patient – Adam. The more she unearths about Adam, the more her life and those closest to her are endangered. As she explores Adam’s past, Cara’s world begins to fall apart and she is forced to question her strong beliefs in science and in God. Racing against the clock to solve the mystery surrounding Adam, Cara must not lose faith or it could have grave consequences for her and her family.
Starring Julianne Moore, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jeffrey DeMunn, Frances Conroy, Brooklynn Proulx, Nathan Corddry, KatiAna Davis, Michael Graves, and directed by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein.
The film is due out in 2010, though you’re probably looking at a very limited release and then DVD.
