Storyline

In a world that is increasingly dependent on electricity, a power outage seems like an awful predicament, as we can't imagine ourselves living in a world deprived of electricity. With this in mind, after a lingering power outage, a father and his two daughters will find themselves trapped in a completely different reality; one that will change their lives forever. But, is this outage regional, or does it affect the entire country? In the end--as these, and other, more crucial questions require an answer--no one can tell if the family has what it takes to survive; nonetheless, they will still have to put to the test their skills, their adaptability and endurance, but above all, find the courage to challenge the integrity of their familial bonds.

Ellen Page wouldn't know a good story if she read it in a book
21 January 2017 | by can-da-spamSee all my reviews

Two great actresses go to a forest to conduct a train wreck. No spoilers. I'm not giving away anything. Watch it if you must. I suggest you delete this from your watch-list.

The actors are as great as ever -- the story is a book to burn for warmth. This movie is well acted and gripping in its intensity, but I can only warn other viewers, its third act collapses and the movie ends preposterously. Just inexplicable. It starts to stink pretty early on when it becomes apparent the editing or ad hoc screen writing started to jump around with implausible leaps.

It's so bad, you'd rather the ending was "woke up and it was all a dream." Again, no spoilers, the plot has nothing to do with a dream or surreal adventure (though I wish it were so.) It's a stinker of a movie.
