A movie about suppressing emotions will make you pretty emotional
5 October 2015 | by meredithclarke-57041See all my reviews

I don't think this film deserves the bad reviews it is receiving. Of course everyone has different opinions on a great film. Personally, a movie is good (or great or excellent) if it sticks with me for a while after. I found myself thinking about the main characters for a few days after watching it at the Toronto International Film Festival. This film made me feel many emotions for the characters -which is very ironic considering the main theme of Equals. I thought Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult had excellent chemistry and portrayed their characters so wonderfully, and that's an impressive accomplishment if you remember the characters for the most part are supposed to be emotionless.
