For me, a near masterpiece
26 June 2016 | by elliskjamesSee all my reviews

I'll tell you what you need to know: if you like movies like this, you'll like this one. Maybe a whole lot. It's a science fiction movie with heart, that doesn't rely on explosions and death rays and warp speed travel, and it sheds light on things that are happening in our society today. The acting is very, very good. There is genuine chemistry between the leads, and they were both born to play these parts. The movie makes you think and feel. It's smart and it's deep. It's internally consistent. The soundtrack works. You can learn from it. There aren't anywhere near enough movies like this being made these days.

Some people hated this movie. A lot of times, I think people that hate a movie like this are people who don't like the fact that their own shortcomings are being exposed.

For me, when the movie ended, I experienced body-wide chills, and my eyes filled with tears. I loved it. I subtract a point because, from time to time, it moves a bit slower than it might need to. It's not quite an all time science fiction masterpiece, but it's close. It'll move you. You'll remember it. It'll give you something to talk about. It's a date movie you can both enjoy.

If you like movies like this, you know who you are, and you can't possibly miss this movie. You won't. You're too smart for that.
