Brilliant story line
10 September 2019 | by lizahope-69399See all my reviews

One of Empathy Inc's greatest attributes is its methodically written story line. Mark Leidner took many risks when writing this film. One of the greatest risks in my opinion was the choice to have three characters switch bodies at the same time. The on-screen effect this decision made was so powerful, it kept me wondering how the story would end for all three of these misplaced characters. Actors Zach Robidas (Joel), Kathy Searle (Jessica), and Jay Klaitz (Lester) portrayed this concept stunningly. Their performance brought Leidner's daring vision to life and created a whole new level of suspense to end the film. A great watch from beginning to end, I'd definitely recommend taking the time to watch this film.
