1h 51min | Drama, Thriller | 2018 (USA)
A father must protect his estranged son from the outside world when the boy accurately predicts three end-of-world events.
This is the first film from writer/director Nathan Leon & it was an entertaining thriller that touched on some deeper philosophical themes throughout. The backbone of the film rests on the shoulders of its two protagonists, Erik & Caleb Black (Cory Kays & Embry Johnson). The duo must overcome their own challenges in their father-son relationship in order to help everyone else in their orbit.
The performance given from Kays is the biggest thing I’ll remember about the film. The transformation he makes from the opening scene to the close really shows the work and attention to detail he & Leon invested in the role. There was also a really terrific monologue delivered from Adam Elliot Davis, who played John, which stood out.
Can’t wait to see what they do next.
