Anon | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Sal Frieland (Clive Owen) is a cop. In this future world, everyone's eyes--because of government-mandated biosyn ocular implants--record everything they see. Further, everyone's eyes are equipped with augmented reality capabilities. The augmented reality displays a data block beside every person within sight. The augmented reality also allows the police to access any person's individual recording history. This makes being a detective pretty easy: You talk to a suspect, you access the person's record, you watch them committing the crime--download upload and Bob's your uncle. Sal uses this ability for good (solving crimes), and uses it to enforce his own personal preferences as well (letting a maid get away with a theft, when the maid stole from an arrogant woman who Sal didn't deem worthy of protection).
Suddenly a woman ("The Girl (Amanda Seyfried)," played by Amanda Seyfried) appears in the movie. Her data block appears as "Error - Not Found" when Sal passes her on the street. That's not supposed to happen. It turns out that The Girl is able to access people's visual record, and erase selected portions of that record. This of course is great for criminals who want to erase the evidence of their crimes. It's also great for regular people who just want to hide things that they're embarrassed about. Anon charges a fee for this service, she also erases herself from the person's memory, and everything seems to be going fine. Until we discover that people who are hiring her are also getting killed. We can't see who is killing them, because of course that is erased from their record, too. Since The Girl is off-grid (illegally) and has these unheard-of-before abilities, she is suspect number one.
