Memories being investigated, Miami underwater and Hugh Jackman as protagonists? Those are the elements on the new Warner Bros. Pictures’ action thriller REMINISCENCE.
From writer/director/producer Lisa Joy, REMINISCENCE follows Nick Bannister, a private investigator of the mind, navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping his clients access lost memories. Living on the fringes of the sunken Miami coast, his life is forever changed when he takes on a new client, Mae.
A simple matter of lost and found becomes a dangerous obsession. As Bannister fights to find the truth about Mae’s disappearance, he uncovers a violent conspiracy, and must ultimately answer the question: how far would you go to hold on to the ones you love?
Alongside Oscar nominee Jackman, the film stars Rebecca Ferguson, Thandiwe Newton, Cliff Curtis, Oscar nominee Marina de Tavira, Daniel Wu, Mojean Aria, Brett Cullen, Natalie Martinez, Angela Sarafyan and Nico Parker.
REMINISCENCE opens in theaters and on HBO MAX this Friday, August 20.
I had the opportunity to speak with actress Natalie Martinez, who plays Avery Castillo, about the script, her best memories, the sunken Miami coast, her new TV series “Ordinary Joe”, and more.
