Faces in the Crowd is a 2011 British-Canadian-American crime drama horror thriller film written and directed by Julien Magnat, starring Milla Jovovich, Julian McMahon, David Atrakchi, Michael Shanks, Sandrine Holt, and Sarah Wayne Callies.
Elementary school teacher Anna Marchant (Milla Jovovich) lives with her boyfriend Bryce (Michael Shanks) in a nice apartment, and every now and then, she meets her best friends Francine (Sarah Wayne Callies) and Nina (Valentina Vargas) to drink and talk.
While Anna is crossing a bridge to meet with Bryce, she sees an infamous serial-killer, known as Tearjerk Jack, killing a woman. Anna runs, but she's attacked by the killer, and she falls off the bridge and hits her head. Anna stays in coma for a week.
When she awakens, she learns that she has brain damage followed by Prosopagnosia, a disorder of face perception where the ability to recognize faces is impaired, while the ability to recognize other objects may be relatively intact.
Police detective Sam Kerrest (Julian McMahon) unsuccessfully tries to get Anna to remember the face of the killer. Anna is incapable of even recognizing Bryce and her close friends. But Tearjerk Jack knows that Anna saw his face, and that's why he's after her.
