Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This dystopian sci-fi movie stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult as two people who fall in love, breaking the laws of a society that treats emotion as a disease. It's a familiar premise, but director Drake Doremus creates an interesting world, full of clean white lines and a social structure that becomes a villain in itself. Against this backdrop, Hoult's first flickers of emotion are given added tension as he enters into an intense relationship with fellow "sufferer" Kristen Stewart. The pair's journey is a little bit predictable, but a strong cast (including an underused Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver) gives Equals a fair degree of polish as it addresses universal themes from an intriguing viewpoint.
