Very under-rated Movie
21 September 2016 | by SergiodaveSee all my reviews

Equals is a Science fiction love story set in a dystopian future, where the citizens are de-sensitised from showing emotions and love. If you're wanting guns, aliens and corny one-liners then this movie is definitely not for you. If, on the other hand you like more sedate and intellectual sci-fi, then I strongly recommend 'Equals'. Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult play the lead roles with fine support from Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver. The chemistry between the lead roles is spot on, the music score is great, the direction and screenplay by Drake Doremus are both excellent. Ignore the naysayers watch it, like me you might be greatly surprised
