Equals Movie Review

Kristen Stewart stars in Equals


Rotten Tomatoes Plot: Two young lovers living in a future devoid of emotions discover that a disease has the power to bring them back in this sci-fi romance from director Drake Doremus. Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult star in this Scott Free Films production featuring Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver.

Stop me if you've heard this one before. Dystopian future, no emotions and lots of white (actors, clothes, etc.) It's been done to death: So much so, it warrants its own Wikipedia page. Equals is yet another chapter in a depressing genre. "Remember, a cure is right around the corner." Fat chance. Evidently America wants to see Stewart and Hoult pace back and forth (and back again) pout and suffer for 101 minutes. Funny, that's what I was doing at home, while watching this ordeal. Worth a look, if you're into brooding and cool, near-empty apartments. Otherwise, read a book.

Grade: D+
