Movie Review: EQUALS

EQUALS | © 2016 A24/DirecTV

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Nicholas Hoult, Kristen Stewart, Jacki Weaver, Guy Pearce, David Selby, Bel Powley Writer: Nate Parker, story by Drake Doremus Director: Drake Doremus Distributor: A24/DirecTV Release Date (theatrical, DirecTV): July 15, 2016 In a number of ways, EQUALS resembles quite a few screen adaptations of young adult dystopian science fiction novels. In a future where people are born after having been subjected to neonatal injections designed to inhibit their emotions, Silas (Nicholas Hoult) and Nia (Kristen Stewart) fall in love.

In Starz’s new Saturday-night half-hour comedy BLUNT TALK, premiering August 22 at 9 PM, Patrick Stewart stars as news host Walter Blunt.

Walter relies hugely on his loyal staff – especially manservant Harry (Adrian Scarborough) and producer/manager Rosalie (Jacki Weaver). Jonathan Ames, who previously created BORED TO DEATH for HBO, is […]Read On »
