'Was it real or was it my imagination' is the question Julianne Moore's character Lisey keeps asking herself in the trailer of 'Lisey's Story' which sees Lisey caught up in the fantasy world her husband created. But she's not alone in the darkness, but it is not company that wishes her well. The gripping trailer has Julianne Moore in top form as the widow who is tenuously walking the line between fantasy and reality.
