Fierce People Reviews
Anton Yelchin is perfect in coming of age roles, and he shines also here as Finn, a troubled teenager embarking on a journey of learning about humanity during one summer. Twilight Star Kristen Stewart could still act when this was made, and actually the whole cast has been selected quite nicely.
The movie reaches a perfect flavor that mixes drama, tragedy, comedy and surrealism in an odd but compelling combination. Here‚(TM)s a film that isn‚(TM)t afraid of crossing genre boundaries but still feels organic and plausible. It‚(TM)s an exploration on individual growth, the irrationality of societal classes and the darkest, primitive biological modes of behavior still manifest in human interaction. The title of the film refers to Finn‚(TM)s father‚(TM)s occupation in anthropology. During the course of the film Finn realizes that the social elite he spends his summer with are every bit as cruel, aggressive and dangerous as the fiercest human tribes are imagined to be.
