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.
