Leonardo DiCaprio plays Cobb, a master of “extraction,” a technology that allows him to invade and manipulate another person’s dream world. Having made a business out of exploiting its potential for corporate espionage, he is enlisted by a powerful client (Ken Watanabe) for a job that imperils not just Cobb but his team of fellow extractors (as played by Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy and Dileep Rao).
