Rating: R Stars: Imogen Poots, Jesse Eisenberg, Jonathan Aris, Eanna Hardwicke, Senan Jennings Writer: Garret Shanley Director: Lorcan Finnegan Distributor: Saban Films Release Date: March 27, 2020 VIVARIUM begins with the spectacle of a young cuckoo chick shoving other baby birds of another species out of a nest so that it can get the other chicks’ parent’s food all to itself. This beginning is in one way a literal representation of what we’re about to see, but in another way, it’s inexact. We meet good-hearted elementary school teacher Gemma (Imogen Poots) and her landscaper boyfriend Tom (Jesse Eisenberg) as they’re […]Read On »
