Leonardo DiCaprio stars in this sci-fi thriller written and directed by Christopher Nolan. Set in a near-futuristic world, a young man (DiCaprio) possesses the rare ability to enter peoples' dreams. A corporate tycoon offers him the chance to return to his family in a normal life if he's willing to complete a new challenge. Cobb is asked to invade the dreams of a young corporate heir and implant an idea in his head.
Like the best hard sci-fi, Inception creates from whole cloth an entirely new story space, with its own logic and rules. Moments of absolute beauty and exhilaration mix with moments of way too much talking about subconscious this and catharsis that.
