The Voices debuted this time last year at the Sundance Film Festival. It’s taken a while to get it to audiences, partly because while the premise of Ryan Reynolds talking to animals sounds like it’ll be a family-friendly romp, the movie itself is a lot more weird and unusual than that.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is that chipper guy clocking the nine-to-five at a bathtub factory, with the offbeat charm of anyone who could use a few friends. With the help of his court-appointed psychiatrist, he pursues his office crush (Gemma Arterton). However, the relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn after she stands him up for a date. Guided by his evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog, Jerry must decide whether to keep striving for normalcy, or indulge in a much more sinister path.’
That sinister path may include killing women.
Anna Kendrick and Jacki Weaver co-star in the film with Marjane Satrapi directing. The film arrives on VOD and in cienmas on February 6th in the US, while it should arrive in the UK on March 20th. [Read more…]
