Solace is a crime thriller that leans into the mystical and supernatural. It follows an FBI agent Merriweather, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who enlists the aid of a former partner of his, who has psychic abilities, to track down a wanted serial killer. His partner, John Clancy, played by Anthony Hopkins, is a retired doctor who gave up his career following the death of his daughter and resulting divorce. As such, he has become a bitter recluse. However, after having a vision of the horrific death of Merriweather's FBI partner, Clancy is persuaded to help. But as they will soon come to find, the killer they are after is far more formidable than they could have imagined. And he may prove a real match, in more ways than one, for the abilities of Clancy. Can they manage to track and take down this violent force, or will he prove too much for the FBI, even with Clancy's supernatural gifts?

movie facts

It has been noted by the film's director and producers that the story is very much inspired by the films Seven and Silence of the Lambs, the latter of which also stars Anthony Hopkins in a central role as Hannibal Lecter. It was even potentially written as a direct sequel or spiritual successor to Seven at one point in conceptualization. The films share themes of the vaguely supernatural and disturbingly violent and sadistic serial killers at large, hunted by law enforcement, with the assistance of unusual characters.
