Advantageous (2015) Rated NR

In the future where opulence hides the economic hardship, a single mother tries to keep going despite the instability in the world. Starring Jacqueline Kim, James Urbaniak, and Freya Adams.

I thought this film showed a brilliant take on where our life is heading: a life of being perfect and having everything you could want, and what that does for people. We see the life of a single mother and the choices she needs to make to help her daughter survive in this world. The acting was better than I expected. However, this film could have been so much better if they didn’t disregard the faith of the parents. The faith and spirituality of the film are so pivotal, but it doesn’t answer the basic question. The film exemplifies what it looks at throughout the film: it’s visually stunning but lacks depth. It’s not worth the watch.
