Set in a not-too-distant future where America has lost its "war" on drugs, Fred, an undercover cop, is one of many people hooked on the popular drug, Substance D, which causes its users to develop split personalities. Fred is obsessed with taking down Bob, a notorious drug dealer, but due to his Substance D addiction, he does not know that he is also Bob. Based on a classic novel by Philip K. Dick, A Scanner Darkly stars Keanu Reeves (Constantine, The Matrix trilogy), Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Winona Ryder (Girl, Interrupted), Academy Award and Emmy-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Robert Downey Jr. (Good Night, And Good Luck, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang), and Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominee and Emmy-winner Woody Harrelson (North Country). Directed by Academy Award-nominee Richard Linklater (Before Sunset, Dazed and Confused), the movie was filmed in live-action and then animated using the same critically acclaimed process seen in his previous film, Waking Life.
