Quotes

Silas: [propped up on his arm in bed with Nia] I never could have imagined what love felt like. It's... strange... like a tornado going around and...
Nia: Yeah
[laughs shyly, then turns serious]
Nia: That's why I was scared of it at first.
Silas: [nods several times]
Nia: It's about giving. Like, I want you to take everything. I don't even know what it is but I want you to take it from me.

'1984' meets 'The Giver' meets 'terrible acting'
20 September 2015 | by netflixandchillSee all my reviews

I had the unfortunate opportunity of viewing 'Equals' at the Toronto International Film Festival this past weekend--and boy was it a huge let down. At a quick glance the film and its premise seemed promising, a futuristic sci-fi love story undoubtedly drawing inspiration from dystopian classics such as 1984 and The Giver. And likely, this is what tricked hundreds of film enthusiasts (admittedly, myself included) into cramming into an auditorium on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. 101 minutes that no one will ever get back. The painfully slow story development coupled with terrible acting (Kristen Stewart is truly a disaster) killed all chances of 'Equals' becoming any semblance of a decent film. Incredibly melodramatic, boring, predictable, and just flat out bad. Save both your time and money, this one's not worth it.
