STARRING Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, and Vera Farmiga
DIRECTED BY Duncan Jones

A mind-bending tech-thriller in the vein of Déjè Vu, Source Code follows an air force captain (Jake Gyllenhaal) who’s drafted by the government to participate in a military experiment called “the Source Code.” Using that program, Gyllenhaal can inhabit another man’s identity for the last eight minutes of that mans’ life. He relives the same train bombing over and over again, each time becoming more resolved to save the life of a woman he’s fallen for (Michelle Monaghan). Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright appear as two of the program’s masterminds.
