“I want you to close your eyes and think of a memory that makes you happy. Now think of a memory that you associate with your youth. Now consider the most painful memory in your life. Now open your eyes.” In ‘Rememory’ Gordon Dunn, a famed scientific pioneer, is mysteriously found dead just after the unveiling of his newest work, a groundbreaking device able to extract, record and play a person’s unfiltered memories exactly as they were, exactly as they happened. After his death, Gordon’s reclusive wife, Carolyn, delves deeper into her own private world when a mysterious man shows up claiming to be from Gordon’s past. The widow stumbles upon one of his inventions that’s able to record and play a person’s memory.
“We are nothing more than the memories we keep.” With questionable motives the mysterious man takes the machine and uses it to try to solve the mystery, beginning an investigation of memories that lead him down a path of guilt, grief, and betrayal to an unexpected answer.
Peter Dinklage plays a mysterious guilt-ridden amateur sleuth investigating death who is “haunted by his past” who shows up and sets about trying to solve a murder using this memory machine, which allows him to watch memories from other people. As the investigation continues, a web of intrigue and deceit is uncovered. “He has a very painful memory from his recent past that he wants to unravel,” Dinklage said of his character.
“Memory is the ultimate decider of our lives,” “We only know the true value of a moment when it becomes a memory,” and so on. Written and directed by Mark Palansky, Mike Vukadinovich and Peter Dinklage, ‘Rememory’ stars Julia Ormond, Anton Yelchin, Henry Ian Cusick, Gracyn Shinyei and Colin Lawrence. The film premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival January 25, 2017.
