The main character, Leonard, is a man who cannot make new memories since the rape and murder of his wife, and who has devoted his life to attempting to get revenge for his wife’s death. His character is played by Guy Pearce. The other main characters in the film are Leonard’s friend, Teddy, played by Joe Pantoliano, and Natalie, a woman helping Leonard in his quest, played by Carrie-Anne Moss.
