A gripping and chilling psychological thriller about a man, Leonard To (Tobin), still struggling to come to terms with his grief nearly a year after his wife’s unsolved murder. Hoping to move on with his life, Leonard reconnects with Grace (Yuan), a woman from his past, and his outlook begins to brighten. A visit to the site of his wife’s murder leads him to a mysterious interloper (Mann) whom he believes to be her killer. Leonard decides to take justice into his own hands and things take a startling turn toward the unexpected.
Jasmine is a must-see for all suspense film fans, with a convincing performance from Tobin as a man unhinged.
