“How to separate truth from fiction in Rachel Weiszu0026#39;s character in u0026quot;Complete Unknownu0026quot; is the key to the story of a biologist who has led a deceptive life laced with a ton of u0026#39;fertilizeru0026#39;. She has so many falsities in her life story she canu0026#39;t keep them all straight. She appears at a party at Tomu0026#39;s (Michael Shannon) house as the date of his best friend and beguiles the group with so much fabrication that they begin to see through her. But not as fast as Tom, who dated her at some time previous and knows that she isnu0026#39;t even using her real name.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Complete Unknownu0026quot; is a character study, about which the moral is u0026#39;know thyselfu0026#39; (unless, of course, you donu0026#39;t want to). Lot of good chemistry between Shannon and Weisz, who play off each exceptionally well. The story becomes increasingly beside the point as watching the two display their acting chops. In sum, a silly story held together by two pros. Itu0026#39;s an u0026#39;indyu0026#39; which wonu0026#39;t get a lot of exposure but is a treat from an acting standpoint.”
