Two teenagers who were traumatized at childhood. They make the choice of how their scars defines them.
29 May 2017 | by ajsanajeSee all my reviews

I don't watch that many 'New-kid in a small town' movies, so the common premise did not eschew me (although I suspect veterans of this may still find this one is different from the lot).

Natural Selection is a movie shot with an attention to detail. From the start, every character's nuance and mannerism (e.g drawing attention to how one character empties his pockets - becomes important later on) quickly blossoms into character defining details which becomes relevant to the movie's plot. The cinematography is good. I won't overpraise it by saying I saw Mona Lisas in this, but I enjoyed it enough that the after-images of some frames is still there in my mind's eye.

A worthwhile watch, in a kickback-on-a-rainy-Sunday kind of way.
