  • Elliot Page portrays Ariadne, a young architect who joins the team to design dreamscapes and navigate the subconscious in Inception.

Ending

Inception ends with Cobb returning home and reuniting with his children, suggesting that he has successfully completed his mission. However, the film leaves the audience questioning whether Cobb is still in a dream or back in reality. The final shot shows Cobb's spinning totem, a symbol of his reality, but it cuts to black before it can fully reveal its outcome, leaving the answer up to interpretation.
