Upstream Color

A uniquely nightmarish cinematic journey.

An office worker (Amy Seimetz) is kidnapped, drugged, subjected to a strange operation, and released. As her psyche unravels, she bonds with a former stockbroker (Shane Carruth) who may have been a victim of the same experience, and the two try to find out what has happened to them. A dizzying cascade of images, some menacing, some beautiful, mark this sci-fi thriller, one of the most talked-about American independent films of recent years.
