Trivia

The production ran into a problem with the streetlights of Iqaluit and Apex during filming in Nunavut. The streetlights in these locations are sodium-based and cast an unusual orange-green hue, especially when captured on camera. The production asked the Qulliq Energy Corporation of Nunavut for permission to turn off 50 lights for filming, but was told it would cost at least $22,500 for turning off just 15 lights and would cost much more to turn off the full 50 lights, something the production had not expected and therefore had not allocated any of their production budget for. This led the production to many discussions over several months with the Iqaluit City Council for assistance in turning off the lights. See more »

Quotes

Lucy: I had a nightmare.
Roman: What was it?
Lucy: Running through this tunnel, and someone was following me. And I was trying to run away and I couldn't run - my legs were frozen. And this man was right behind me. I was screaming, screaming, and screaming. I was trying to get someone to help me. And I couldn't make a sound, so no one was coming. And he was right behind me. He put his hand on my shoulder and I woke up.

confused magic hallucination
7 October 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Lucy (Tatiana Maslany) and Roman (Dane DeHaan) are a young couple living in a remote Canadian arctic outpost. Roman talks to a bear. They go out on a snowmobile trip. Stuff happens.

I love the two leads and they have an intriguing chemistry. At first, I figured the bear is a hallucination. It's almost an hour in and both of them see the bear but only Roman can hear him which suggests that he's not hallucinating the bear. It's magical or delusional. Then the movie gets disjointed and there is a confused flow. Then it's all a hallucination which is kind of a relief. Then I start to wonder when the hallucinating started and I'm back to confused. I want to like this for the actors but I can't really follow this movie.
