Westworld co-creator, writer, director and executive producer Lisa Joy makes her feature directorial debut with upcoming action thriller Reminiscence.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Rebecca Ferguson and Thandiwe Newton, the story goes something like this: “Nick Bannister (Jackman), a private investigator of the mind, navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping his clients access lost memories. Living on the fringes of the sunken Miami coast, his life is forever changed when he takes on a new client, Mae (Ferguson). A simple matter of lost and found becomes a dangerous obsession. As Bannister fights to find the truth about Mae’s disappearance, he uncovers a violent conspiracy, and must ultimately answer the question: how far would you go to hold on to the ones you love?

Reminiscence is set to light up Australian cinemas from August 19. Here’s a look at what to expect:
