Raised in isolation, the children of Sunderland face an all-consuming choice. They can attend school to learn the teachings of the Angel and "evolve" like their parents, or they can fall; living their lives in the wasteland at the edge of the community where their small rebellions are tolerated as long as they remain within the confines of Sunderland. Like some of the other children David has already decided to fall when the time comes, but he has his own reasons.

Exile: Bizarre yet entertaining
17 September 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Exile is such a strange little creature and the front cover is highly deceptive! Telling the tale of a small society governed by a being referred to as an angel the citizens reach a point of their studies where they have to choose whether to be "blessed" which will have them merge with an alien entity or "fall" which means they'll be exiled.

Following one young man as he makes his decision and the impact on those around him.

Truth be told it's not the simplest story to follow and there is little background given forcing heavy interpretation and assumption but regardless the concept is really quite good.

Flawed in several areas the movie certainly isn't without its faults but provides a unique tale that certainly got my attention.

The Good:

Brilliant concept

The Bad:

Could have been made a tad better

Story is riddled with holes

Finale was pretty weak
