Equals is a tale of adolescent puppy love, suitable only for pre
Drake Doremus and Nathan ParkerCast:
Nicholas Hoult, Kristen StewartRated: 14A; mature themes, sexual content, rampant emotionsGenre: Science-fictionDuration: 102 minutesSynopsis: In a world where emotions are illegal, two people fall in love.
Equals is rated 14A in Ontario, which means anyone younger needs an adult minder. But I argue that it should be rated 14-only; this is a tale of adolescent puppy love that will appeal only to those who are just beginning to experience the first stirrings of romance.
The Romeo-Juliet story is wrapped in science-fiction trappings. In an unspecified future, <a href=http://www.nbpascherrunning.fr/New-Balance-1400-Homme-c-13_14.html>New Balance 1400 Homme</a> following a nasty war, humanity has done away with all emotions. Not sure how I feel about that.
Denizens of this dystopia wear white and speak in polite monotones, like Torontonians before Labour Day. They don carry cellphones, but they do play electronic games ?Non-Aggressive Birds, say, or Pokemon Go ?But Not Too Fast.
Of course, there always a Logan 5 or a Katniss Everdeen in the mix. In <a href=http://www.nbpascherrunning.fr/New-Balance-1600-Homme-c-6_7.html>New Balance 1600 Homme</a> this case it Silas (Nicholas Hoult), an illustrator who learns he got a case of SOS, or Switched On Syndrome. This sickness causes him to have feelings, first and foremost for his colleague Nia. She played by Kristen Stewart, who has never found a better outlet for her stoic acting style.
Fortunately, Nia got a touch of the SOS as well, which is where all the adolescent romance comes in. All the fumbling. All the whispering. All the furtive meetings and almost hand-holding. If theye not careful theyl get sent to the Defective Emotional Neuropathy facility, or DEN, which I guessing does not contain shag carpets or ping pong tables.
Director and co-writer Drake Doremus has been down the romantic road before ?his best known is probably Like Crazy with Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones ?but there nothing new in this futuristic love nest.
It the kind of world where your spotless bed slides out of the wall at the appointed time, which I suppose means if you oversleep itl dump you on the floor. Everyone in the society lives by strict rules, no one steps out of line, and excess creativity is <a href=http://www.nbpascherrunning.fr/New-Balance-1600-Homme-c-6_7.html>pas cher New Balance 1600 Homme</a> frowned upon. It a pity the film lives up to its fictional manifesto so well.
