Intelligent, fun, moving and very entertaining movie with great cast
29 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In my opinion the best movie out of Sundance in 2014 (and I watched quite a few). Loved the concept and the cast, movie could be slightly edited to move faster but what a trip! It presents itself as an intelligent broad appeal release, not the typical indie-low budget-gritty product of Sundance. I like more mainstream movies, and loved this movie so my guess is that will resonate with a very large audience when released. The love story is so convincing that casts a haunting spell in the rest of the movie, and the scientific discovery (don't want to spoil the story) is so cool and full of heart that if true in real life would completely change the way we look at life and relationships. Kudos to Fox Searchlight, they seem to be on a roll with award winning titles and out of the box, but mainstream appealing movies.
