Walter Sparrow (Jim Carrey) is a simple, quiet family man, a dogcatcher by trade. One evening, his wife (Virginia Madsen) wanders into a used bookstore and buys a book. This book will change Walter’s life forever.
The book chronicles the murderous obsession of a man named Fingerling with the number 23, and how this number comes to rule his life. To Walter’s horror, the book seems to mirror intimate details of his past. The more he reads, the more revealing the book becomes, and he begins to notice the number 23 popping up in almost everything he does. Now the book not only knows his past, it begins to forecast his future. And his future seems to be that of a killer…
Refreshingly original thriller “The Number 23” is directed by Joel Schumacher (“Phone Booth”, “Tigerland”) and stars Jim Carrey, Virginia Madsen, Rhona Mitra and Danny Huston.
