The trailer for Bliss takes us into the world of a man named Greg, who works in a high-pressure job and barely has time for his daughter Emily. One day, in a bar, he meets a mysterious woman, Isabel, who points out to him that the ugly world they inhabit is a simulated one, and that the ‘real’ world is much better. As Greg starts spending more and more time in Isabel’s ‘real’ world, it becomes increasingly impossible for him to accept the ugliness of his ‘simulated’ existence’. But what happens when both worlds start to melt into each other?
Directed by Mike Cahill, this sci-fi drama stars Owen Wilson, Salma Hayek, Nesta Cooper, Madeline Zima and others. Bliss releases on Amazon Prime Video on February 5, 2021.
