Immortality isn't all it's cracked up to be for Tom Hughes in this smart and stylish sci-fi drama
Immortality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be for Tom Hughes in this smart and stylish sci-fi drama.
Cryogenically frozen in the present to evade terminal cancer, Hughes finds himself revived in 2084 by doctor Barry Ward and his team, including wide-eyed nurse Charlotte Le Bon.
But his body is surprisingly fragile and weak, and he remains haunted by memories of the love of his life, on-off girlfriend Oona Chaplin.
Though the movie fails to pack a huge emotional punch, its willingness to grapple with weighty ideas makes for compelling viewing.
