Overview
Invited to Nightmute, Alaska, to head a murder case, a veteran LAPD detective finds his investigation disrupted by an ever-shining midnight sun that wreaks sleep-depriving havoc on him – and by personal guilt over a second crime that may be real...or a figment of his increasingly unstable consciousness. Director Christopher Nolan (whose other credits include Memento and Batman Begins) crafts another jolting psychological thriller to remember, guiding Academy Award® winners* Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank in Insomnia. In the season of the midnight sun, no one – and no secret – can forever hide.

*Pacino: Best Actor (1992) for Scent of a Woman, Swank: Best Actress for Boys Don't Cry (1999) and Million Dollar Baby (2004), Williams: Best Supporting Actor (1997) for Good Will Hunting.
