A movie about suppressing emotions will make you pretty emotional (by meredithclarke-57041)
I don't think this film deserves the bad reviews it is receiving. Of course everyone has different opinions on a great film. Personally, a movie is good or great or excellent if it sticks with me for a while after. I found myself thinking about the main characters for a few days after watching it at the Toronto International Film Festival. This film made me feel many emotions for the characters -which is very ironic considering the main theme of Equals. I thought Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult had excellent chemistry and portrayed their characters so wonderfully, and that's an <more>
impressive accomplishment if you remember the characters for the most part are supposed to be emotionless.
I had expectations for this film, which were all exceeded. I expected the film to be somewhat even kilter from start to finish-- a character development story. What it is is a slow burning, impactive, stressful, hopeful story that will change the way you think about life and the world. Drake Doremus captures the essence of this seemingly peaceful Utopian world, but it is the connection between his two leads that bring this compelling story to life. I feel that people who don't like the film probably simply don't get it. It is deep, and it stays with you long after viewing. Of the <more>
films I saw at TIFF this year, this one is the only one I can't get out of my head. In fact, I liked it so well that I saw it at the second screening as well.
Wow. This movie stuck with me for days... (by abillings-66467)
Please do not judge this movie based on the actors in it or you'll miss out on a goodie. Who ever wrote in another review, "A movie about suppressing your emotions will make you pretty emotional", is right. If you're an action, comedy type of movie person or you are not emotional at all, then you will mostly not find appreciation for a movie like this. When I watch movies, I always put myself in the characters positions and it allows me to appreciate a movie more. Obviously the idea of living in a world where we must suppress our emotions is highly unlikely but imagine if <more>
that's what it came to, because as a whole society we would be more productive. How would that effect you? I thought this movie did an excellent job drawing you in to the build up of the inevitable burst of emotions. There were times I was on the edge of my seat needing to know what was going to happen. The performances were great! And Stewart does an excellent job showing her emotions in this movie - just wait for the knock at the door. I do absolutely recommend this movie. Do you enjoy movies? Do you enjoy a challenge to think a bit deeper rather than surface stuff? Do you love a good love story, or even just a good, thoughtful, thought provoking, deep, raw movie? Can you enjoy a movie for the message it's bringing, even if it seems a little far fetched? If you answered yes to any one of the questions, check it out! For me, it stuck with me for days, made me question some things. I love a movie like that.
I'll tell you what you need to know: if you like movies like this, you'll like this one. Maybe a whole lot. It's a science fiction movie with heart, that doesn't rely on explosions and death rays and warp speed travel, and it sheds light on things that are happening in our society today. The acting is very, very good. There is genuine chemistry between the leads, and they were both born to play these parts. The movie makes you think and feel. It's smart and it's deep. It's internally consistent. The soundtrack works. You can learn from it. There aren't anywhere <more>
near enough movies like this being made these days.Some people hated this movie. A lot of times, I think people that hate a movie like this are people who don't like the fact that their own shortcomings are being exposed.For me, when the movie ended, I experienced body-wide chills, and my eyes filled with tears. I loved it. I subtract a point because, from time to time, it moves a bit slower than it might need to. It's not quite an all time science fiction masterpiece, but it's close. It'll move you. You'll remember it. It'll give you something to talk about. It's a date movie you can both enjoy.If you like movies like this, you know who you are, and you can't possibly miss this movie. You won't. You're too smart for that.
I rate this 9 out of 10 only because the sound quality leaves much to be desired. Parts of the movie are so subdued it's difficult to understand what people are saying. I had to turn my video player to double volume just to hear the movie at low-standard volume. That cost it a point.Other than that... without spoiling the plot, this is what Logan's Run and THX-1138 should have been. No pointless, time-wasting action, no gratuitous nudity, just sheer human emotion, drama and situation. The directing is excellent. The acting is superb. I am very critical when it comes to films but I <more>
couldn't find a single conceptual or production flaw throughout except for the aforementioned poor sound handling . This is an intriguing, fascinating story that leaves the viewer with mixed emotions. What would we prefer, a pristine, harm-free society in which emotion is subdued, or one full of emotion, beauty... and the pain brought about by those emotions?This film both answers and refuses to answer that question. It presents a story, leaving us to determine which we would prefer. The story is well-crafted, has enough twist to surprise, and an ending that satisfies without preaching. This is one of the best films I've ever seen in this genre. Yes, it is slow, has little or no action, no blood, gore, gratuitous sex or other things on which today's society seems to thrive. In short-- this is story telling, directing, acting and movie-making at its finest for those minds who are more interested in humanity than car chases.Highly recommended.
I thought the film was beautiful in it's simplicity. Left with an open ending i never enjoy those , the watcher of course is forced to wonder. I imagine, and the direction the last scene showed rather confirms, that his emotions returned shortly thereafter and that they made it out to live their lives together. I also like to imagine they found the other survivors at The Peninsula, already established with food and shelter, etc. Of course, with no confirmation, we'll never know. I'm sick of hearing band wagoners complaining of Kristen Stewarts lack of emotion, it only shows that <more>
they're the ones lacking. She portrays many emotions, they flit across her face, in her eyes. She brings life to an otherwise dull scene. And Hoult has been on my radar since Skins, and I'm so pleased to see him rising the ranks here in the US. They both have exceptional talent.
A deeply-affecting love story. Sweet and fascinating! (by Ramascreen)
Drake Doremus' EQUALS, starring #KristenStewart and #NicholasHoult, is a sweet and fascinating Romeo & Juliet story. It has similar traits as Doremus' 2011 "Like Crazy" in that it plays into that deep longing and desire for someone and the system just wouldn't let these two souls be together. It's set in some kind of futuristic dystopian utopia, where society practically abolishes coupling, romance, even having some kind of feeling, which is why I say EQUALS is what those many young adult novel adaptations out there wish they could've been but <more>
weren't.Written by Nathan Parker, the story has Kristen Stewart play Nia and Nicholas Hoult as Silas, two people in the same workplace, they have the same routine as everybody else in their company. This is a world where everybody gets assigned their jobs and they don't deviate from them. After years of wars and violence, society decides that it's best for mankind to not have any kind of emotions, so they've created a way for that to happen. Anybody who feels any type of emotion is said to have a bug and usually they get quarantined but even there they're told that they're worth nothing now and suicide is the only way. But Nia and Silas can't help noticing a growing attraction between them which leads to a forbidden relationship. Turns out, there are other 'hiders' as well, people who pretend they don't have emotions when in fact they do, and they're determined to help Nia and Silas escape.Though it's not an adaptation, the film really does move and feel like those young adult novel adaptations, which is why I made the comparison earlier. But what Doremus successfully managed to do is focus on more on the relationship and less on any wishes for an uprising. The focus is mostly on Nia and Silas. And the actors who play them, Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are so in sync, their chemistry doesn't just exist, it's electrifying. It's been a while, probably since "The Notebook," that a couple could have this much energy that burns the screen.If you've come to see what type of science fiction technological advances this film might show, if it would have flying vehicles or laser weapons or talking robot, EQUALS has none of those things. It has some cool computers, but they're hardly the supporting roles. And that's what I also enjoy about this film, it's simple yet gripping, it's familiar territory but very up close and intimate. And Doremus' quiet, subtle yet stylistic approach lands perfectly. It's like if Stanley Kubrick and Spike Jonze co-made a movie together. EQUALS may not have been a completely new concept but this is one that's done really well. It's a deeply-affecting love story.-- Rama's Screen --
Equals is a Science fiction love story set in a dystopian future, where the citizens are de-sensitised from showing emotions and love. If you're wanting guns, aliens and corny one-liners then this movie is definitely not for you. If, on the other hand you like more sedate and intellectual sci-fi, then I strongly recommend 'Equals'. Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult play the lead roles with fine support from Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver. The chemistry between the lead roles is spot on, the music score is great, the direction and screenplay by Drake Doremus are both excellent. <more>
Ignore the naysayers watch it, like me you might be greatly surprised
I did enjoy watching the movie, as the characters are well built and interfere quite effortlessly, but it just felt much too similar to Equilibrium, but the almost Romeo and Juliet ending was a pleasant surprise.I guess this is a good option for the younger generation, who fails to look back.The cast displays good chemistry in terms of what the script requires. To be honest,this was the first time I enjoyed watching Kristen Steward perform. The role suited her quite well. Good thing Nicholas Hoult is her co-star, to bring some believable warmth.Also, I was happy to see Guy Pearce. He delivers <more>
his part flawlessly, as usual.Something is missing, although I cannot quite enunciate what that something consists of. Maybe I am just too fond of Equilibrium.
