A Confused Detective Tries to Investigate a World Difficult to Delineate as Real in the Netflix Film ‘Anon’

In the dystopian Netflix film Anon, a beleaguered detective (Clive Owen) does his best to investigate a series of murders during a time in which there is no privacy, everything is traceable and people have the ability to delete themselves and/or their memories as if they were computer code. One such case involves a mysterious girl (Amanda Seyfried) whose presence makes the world difficult for the detective to delineate as real.

Sal Frieland is a detective in a world with no privacy or anonymity; …in trying to solve a series of murders, Frieland stumbles on a young woman known only as the Girl. She has no identity, no history and is invisible to the cops. Sal realizes this may not be the end of crime, but the beginning.

Anon premieres May 4, 2018 on Netflix.
