Trivia

There are numerous references to Portal (2007) and Portal 2 (2011). Mother resembles GLaDoS in her facial appearance, voice, and facility-wide control. A young woman is trapped in a facility and forced to perform tests. Later in the film, Daughter's jumpsuit is tied around her waist revealing a white tank top, which is almost identical to Chell's outfit. She is also offered cake by Mother, which is a recurring theme/joke in Portal. The themes to both also appear to be "escape." See more »

A True Sci-Fi Original
30 January 2019 | by bmaughan-51464See all my reviews

The sets, the effects, the performances all come together in a truly great way. It's one of those movies with a small scale set and limited cast that puts the focus on these character relationships. It does not play out the way you would think. It makes you think about big ideas. I loved it.
