About Inception

In the thrilling and mind-bending movie, Inception, directed by Christopher Nolan, the main characters are led by Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays the role of Dom Cobb, a highly skilled thief with an unusual specialty. Cobb is an expert at corporate espionage, but not in the way you might think. Instead of breaking into buildings or hacking into computer systems, Cobb infiltrates the subconscious of his targets to extract their deepest secrets. This unique talent has cost him dearly, however, as he is now on the run from the law and unable to return to his old life.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Arthur, Cobb's right-hand man and longtime associate. Arthur is just as skilled as Cobb when it comes to navigating the dreamworld, and he is always by Cobb's side, no matter how dangerous the mission. Together, the two of them make an unstoppable team, able to extract valuable information from even the most guarded of targets.

When Cobb is offered the chance to regain his old life as payment for a task considered to be impossible, he jumps at the opportunity. The task is "inception," the implantation of another person's idea into a target's subconscious. If Cobb can pull off this seemingly impossible feat, he will be able to go home to his children, who he has not seen in years. But as Cobb and his team delve deeper into the dreamworld, they begin to realize that the mission is more dangerous than they could have ever imagined. They will have to use all of their skills and cunning to survive, as the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur.
