Movie Info

When two respected scientists quit their jobs at a prestigious university and tackle their biggest experiment to date - parenthood! Raising three children against their genetic predispositions, they seek to prove that everyone has the same potential to become anything they choose. The big question being, are we born as we are, or can we blame our parents for who we become? Hilarity ensues as this unconventional family soon discovers the ultimate power of nurture over nature.

  • When its mildly interesting 88 minutes are done, one is left to wonder only if the film could have been a lot better in someone else's hands - perhaps those belonging to Wes Anderson.

  • The movie feels longer than it actually is - always a bad sign - and the climax and denoument are positively underwhelming.

    May 24, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Birthmarked proves both heartfelt and frustrating, perhaps a little like parenthood itself.

  • It never quite swells your heart like a film on familial love and bonding should.

    Mar 30, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Never sells its premise and looks shoddy when compared to fictions that had a pretty obvious influence on it.

    Mar 30, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Director Emanuel Hoss-Desmarais shows he can do a pretty good Anderson, but this experiment, otherwise, feels incomplete.
