The Voices is an 2014 American-German comedy crime horror thriller film directed by Marjane Satrapi and written by Michael R. Perry. The film stars Ryan Reynolds, Anna Kendrick, Gemma Arterton, Jacki Weaver and Gulliver McGrath. The film had its world premiere at 2014 Sundance Film Festival on January 19, 2014.[1]


Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is an upbeat man with a sugary view of the world. He is also mentally ill, and has been avoiding taking his prescribed anti-psychotic medication. He hallucinates that his cat is telling him to be a serial killer, while his dog argues against the cat and insists that he is good. When Jerry starts reluctantly taking his medication again, he starts experiencing brief moments of lucidity in which he realizes that the reality of his life is already far more violent than he had perceived it to be.



On March 5, 2014 Lions Gate Entertainment has acquired the US distribution rights to the film.[2]


The filming began in April 2013 in Berlin, Germany.[3]
