Storyline

Star academics, Doctors Julian Reed and Barbara Sullivan, fall in love and conceive the idea of cloning a Neanderthal from ancient DNA. Against the express directive of University administrators, they follow through on this audacious idea. The result is William: the first Neanderthal to walk the earth for some 35,000 years. William tries his best to fit into the world around him. But his distinctive physical features and his unique way of thinking - his 'otherness' - set him apart and provoke fear. William's story is powerful and unique, and his struggle to find love and assert his own identity in a hostile world is universal - and timeless. Written by Cinema Management Group

Excellent except for ending
19 October 2019 | by WVfilmfemSee all my reviews

I disagree with the other negative reviews here . There was a believable science fiction aspect to the film, without getting bogged down in too much science or special effects. The characters were sympathetic, and the story line was coherent and well-done. The settings were beautiful and evoke William's identity with place. The only reason I did not give 10 stars was the ending. After investing time and interest in the film, the viewers deserved a clearer resolution.
