From British director Christopher Nolan ( Memento ), Insomnia is the story of Will Dormer (Al Pacino), a veteran LAPD detective who travels to a small Alaskan town with his partner Hap (Martin Donovan) to investigate the disturbing murder of a seventeen year-old girl. Under the glare of the region's perpetual daylight, Dormer and Hap close in on the prime suspect, reclusive novelist Walter Finch (Robin Williams). During a tense stakeout on a rocky, fog-enshrouded beach, Finch slips into the mist and out of Dormer's grasp. As he makes his escape, Dormer fires his gun... and Hap is killed. As Dormer struggles to cope with his sense of responsibility and remorse over his partner's death, the brilliantly malevolent Finch forces Dormer into a psychological game of cat-and-mouse. The stakes escalate as Dormer contends with an unproven but perceptive local cop (Hilary Swank) and becomes increasingly entangled in Finch's web of manipulation. Unable to find respite from the relentless midnight sun or his own distorted judgment the dangerously sleep-deprived detective finds his stability gravely threatened...
