"We've all been wronged at some point, we've all been down on our luck at some point, we all feel like we've been wronged by life somehow, whether we've got a good life or not," says McAvoy. "Whoever's taking the thing or stealing the thing in stories, I think represents us sort of talking back from fate what it took from us, so that's why we like heist movies, because it's like, 'Yeah, I'm going to take what's mine.'"

Trance finds McAvoy as an art auctioneer who helps Cassel's gang of thieves steal a Goya masterpiece. But when a double-cross results in a blow to McAvoy's head, he claims to have amnesia and Cassel employs beautiful therapist Dawson to help McAvoy remember just where he stashed the valuable art. Blurring the boundaries between reality and hypnotic suggestion, is McAvoy's amnesia real, or a clever ploy in a deadly game of cat and mouse?

Trance steals into theaters April 5.
