About the Spinning Man 💬

A professor's life spirals out of control when he becomes the prime suspect in the disappearance of a female college student...

Human memory lives inside of moments, and guilt is always a minute-by-minute negotiation with ourselves. The notions of remorse, shame, and self-recrimination can only be as powerful as one allows them to be. According to philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, ''We are only able to feel guilty if we believe that we're responsible for our actions or inactions and for our own character.'' What philosophy professor Evan Birch discovers in the taut thriller SPINNING MAN is that when it comes to murder, sex, and betrayal, guilt is in the eye of the beholder.

Evan Birch (Guy Pearce) is a family man and esteemed professor at a distinguished college, where his charm and reputation have made his philosophy class very popular. When a 17-year-old female student named Joyce Bonner (Odeya Rush) goes missing, Evan's life is turned upside down as circumstantial evidence convinces gruff police Detective Malloy (Pierce Brosnan) that Birch is a prime suspect. Suddenly, the questions Evan's faces aren't merely academic - they’re a matter of life or death.

  • The only truth is knowing you know nothing.

Circumstantial evidence seems to place Evan near where Joyce was last seen. And Evan himself remembers seeing Joyce briefly the day she disappeared. Though other details are fuzzy, Evan is certain his memory isn't playing tricks on him. He assures the skeptical Malloy that he isn't lying. Evan is certain of his own innocence, no matter how bad certain things may look.

  • The truth has a way of turning on you.

Unfortunately, how it looks to Evan's wife Ellen Birch (Minnie Driver) is more suspicious. Five years earlier, Evan and Ellen and their two young children had to leave Illinois - and Evan's teaching position at a highly regarded college - after he was caught up in an affair with a student. Evan assures his wife he has not fallen back into old patterns.

Although... there is that pretty, dark-haired young woman Anna (Alexandra Shipp) in his class who keeps wanting to talk with Evan about ''what happened last semester.'' He's unfazed by this girl's references to a past relationship, though, since he's sure nothing happened, nor will happen, despite her repeated requests to see him.

But as Det. Malloy presses further, Evan starts to wonder about the very nature of guilt and innocence, about crime and punishment. Like a philosophical puzzle, he's confident the secret to clearing his name lies in the concepts he teaches - like the one that insists, ''There is no such thing as the truth. What I perceive as truth is the best my memory will allow.''

The media circus begins to kick in and Evan's lawyer Paul (Clark Gregg) starts to get nervous. Malloy wants answers. Ellen begins to question what she thinks she knows about her husband. And Evan starts to feel like a mouse on a wheel, running so fast that everything around him is spinning out of control.
