What happens when an extremely wealthy aristocrat dying of cancer undergoes a medical procedure that transfers his consciousness to the body of a healthy young man? Mayhem, naturally.
Self/less opens in theaters today, bringing Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley to a dramatic head in the most recent sci-fi thriller from Focus Features. Just when Kingsley's character starts getting used to life in the fast lane (and the beautiful women that come with having a body like Reynolds'), the original young man slowly comes back—threatening Kingsley's livelihood all over again. The Imitation Game's Matthew Goode joins the high profile ensemble alongside Downtown Abbey star Michelle Dockery as Kingsley's estranged daughter.
