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.

Good drama with solid performances
1 October 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

Listed as a drama and a sci-fi here but there are not very much sci-fi about it except for it taking place a couple years maybe into the future, but yeah no time traveling, aliens or robots or any of the sort so don't go into it expecting anything of that.

It is a rather down to earth human drama with some scenes of suspense but mostly a drama about human endurance in hard times.

Reading through some of the negative comments on the message-board I get the impression that people thought that this would be some sort of lesbian erotic drama (maybe because the only trivia currently listed is that Ellen Page does her first nude scene in it) but that is not the case, and the scene is not very explicit either.

And some complain about animal cruelty, which is not even shown on screen, there is a quick scene where a animal gets visibly butchered but it's ridiculous to call it animal cruelty as the animal most likely suffered more humane treatment than the meat you buy in store and it was of course already dead.

So those things are something I think are partly the reasons why there are quite a few negative reviews about it.

Not saying that the movie is flawless but I think it was a well spent 95 minutes and one I will watch again sometime most likely.
