Storyline

Eye on Juliet tells the story of an unlikely encounter between Gordon (Joe Cole), a hexapod operator, and Ayusha (Lina El Arabi), a young woman from the Middle East. Gordon, guardian of a pipeline in this desert region, becomes fascinated by Ayusha, while piloting his robotic spider from the other side of the world, in America. Ayusha is promised to an older man she doesn't love. Despite the distance, their mutual fear and their imperfect interaction, he will do everything in his power to help her escape her fate.

Very well acted and directed
27 May 2019 | by McScaredSee all my reviews

I must admit that I'm extremely surprised this film was ever made. If someone pitched the idea to me I doubt I would have went for it.

Perhaps that's why I was so impressed. If I had to narrow down all the things I loved about this story, I would have to start with the exceptional acting. This easily could have flopped with any other cast. Even though I didn't recognize a single actor from previous roles they all came off as seasoned pros. Perhaps that is due to exceptional directing, writing and editing. I can't say. All I can say is that I was unexpectedly drawn into this story and the very convincing characters.
