A24 is one of the studios that I will always expect good things. David Lowery did an excellent job with Pete’s Dragon and that is reason enough to think he knocked this indie flick out of park. Why? This movie needs to be a fantasy, romance with quirkiness and tell a story through the eyes of imagination. Sound like something a guy who helped a boy have a pet dragon could accomplish.
The first thing that most people will think of when they see the begin of this trailer you will think it is a rewrite of the Martian. Instead it is a romance movie with a twist a boy without a mother on a planet where he was born.
When Sofia (Alicia Vikander) is given a chance to marry a successful man it may not be what she wants but when The Abbess of St. Ursula (Judi Dench) tells her it is a safe harbor. She agrees to marry Cornelis (Christopher Waltz) a much older man.
