It's a film that works through guilelessness and cynicism.
Luke Eberl's Choose Connor is a real stunner, an unusual coming-of-age story that packs a wallop in unexpected ways.
| Original Score: 4/5
Whether or not one buys into pic's vision of government as irreversibly corrupt, the leap from the general to the specific registers as unconvincing at best.
Overlong, obvious and indifferently acted.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Choose Connor, a jaundiced look at political power and moral turpitude, draws you in by creeping you out.
| Original Score: 3/5
For reasons that are unclear, Choose Connor seems to both court relevance and avoid it, lapsing into allegory at inopportune moments.
| Original Score: 2/6
Like this election cycle, the movie leaves you cynical and weary. We've seen it all before.
