Quotes

Silas: [propped up on his arm in bed with Nia] I never could have imagined what love felt like. It's... strange... like a tornado going around and...
Nia: Yeah
[laughs shyly, then turns serious]
Nia: That's why I was scared of it at first.
Silas: [nods several times]
Nia: It's about giving. Like, I want you to take everything. I don't even know what it is but I want you to take it from me.
Silas: I just wanna-
[amusedly]

Wow. This movie stuck with me for days...
12 July 2016 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Please do not judge this movie based on the actors in it or you'll miss out on a goodie. Who ever wrote in another review, "A movie about suppressing your emotions will make you pretty emotional", is right. If you're an action, comedy type of movie person or you are not emotional at all, then you will mostly not find appreciation for a movie like this. When I watch movies, I always put myself in the characters positions and it allows me to appreciate a movie more. Obviously the idea of living in a world where we must suppress our emotions is highly unlikely but imagine if that's what it came to, because as a whole society we would be more productive. How would that effect you? I thought this movie did an excellent job drawing you in to the build up of the inevitable burst of emotions. There were times I was on the edge of my seat needing to know what was going to happen. The performances were great! And Stewart does an excellent job showing her emotions in this movie - just wait for the knock at the door. I do absolutely recommend this movie. Do you enjoy movies? Do you enjoy a challenge to think a bit deeper rather than surface stuff? Do you love a good love story, or even just a good, thoughtful, thought provoking, deep, raw movie? Can you enjoy a movie for the message it's bringing, even if it seems a little far fetched? If you answered yes to any one of the questions, check it out! For me, it stuck with me for days, made me question some things. I love a movie like that.
