I had expectations for this film, which were all exceeded. I expected the film to be somewhat even kilter from start to finish-- a character development story. What it is is a slow burning, impactive, stressful, hopeful story that will change the way you think about life and the world. Drake Doremus captures the essence of this seemingly peaceful Utopian world, but it is the connection between his two leads that bring this compelling story to life. I feel that people who don't like the film probably simply don't get it. It is deep, and it stays with you long after viewing. Of the films I saw at TIFF this year, this one is the only one I can't get out of my head. In fact, I liked it so well that I saw it at the second screening as well.
