First Light (2018)
Critic Reviews for First Light
Stone's movie is one of the most frustrating kinds to run into while covering a festival comprised of upcoming filmmakers, the calling card project.
"First Light" doesn't invent anything new, per se, but somehow, in splicing elements from other movies, it fails to achieve the emotional core of its own formula.
Lacking the flash of big-budget blockbusters or the originality of a uniquely imagined world instead leaves First Light trying to make the best of overly familiar sci-fi themes.
There are superpowers and moments of awe -- but the focus on Sean's character and his acceptance of change keeps everything here admirably down to earth.
A beautiful example of small scale filmmaking which, by working well within its limits, manages to achieve much more than one might expect.
