ELLEN PAGE, NOW A VIDEO GAME PIONEER

"What's weirder: piloting a virutal Ellen Page or haunting her through a video-game world? Both happen to be options in Beyond: Two Souls for Playstation 3, an upcoming release by Quantic Dream, which recently debuted 35 minutes of gameplay at the Tribeca Film Festival, in an unprecedented showcase. In the game, you not only play Page as Jodie Holmes, but also Aiden, a paranormal entity that's been tethered to Jodie since she was young. And more than a game, Beyond promises an immersive choose-your-own-adventure experience in which the options take you on an exponential number of emotional journeys. We talked to Page after the Tribeca screening about what it was like to don a motion-capture suit and emote holding a cardboard phone, and about what her performance in Beyond means for the future of gaming."
