EQUALS

A Tribeca Film Festival 2016 Selection

By D.E.Levine

In a world depopulated by war, where public displays of emotion are forbidden and romantic love is a crime, what is left?

Kristen Stewart plays the writer Nia, who falls in love with Silas (Nicholas Hoult), an illustrator.  Afraid of being diagnosed with Switched On Syndrome and heavily medicated until the feelings leave, or being shipped to a facility where people are encouraged to kill themselves, Nia fights the feelings.

It's a sterile world.  Sparsely decorated with large windws and open spaces, a society where everyone dresses in stark white, the film evokes memories of earlier science fiction films and television programs.
