This is a great little post apocalyptic science fiction film wrapped up in a complicated romantic triangle. This is a film concerned with characters and great acting above all else and it’s a pleasure to watch the story unfold and the tension rise. As with other excellent science fiction, this film works on multiple levels, first as a straight-up love story, second as a social critique, and third as an allegory of the biblical Adam & Eve story.
Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) stars as a strong, interesting female character who is torn between two men who enter her life. Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine play the two men, both equally compelling in their performances. The film feels real and although some reviewers criticized the pacing, I thought it worked perfectly. Definitely recommended.
