WTF .. the other reviewer who attacked the negative reviews because this movie DOES REEK with GENDER IDENTITY issues .. has NO IDEA what they are talking about and should get a refund for their self proclaimed "Psyche" degree .. this movie could hav been SOoo much more ! but it leaves you hanging and quite frankly, I thought it never answered the eternal Question of who the heck "A" really was .. quintessentially it Could hav been the on-set of a mental illness akin to what her fathers breakdown emulates … OR it was the framing for Gender Identity issue for the teen when that topic has been beaten to Death by Hollywood, and as another reviewer suggested, do we REALLY NEED ANOTHER GENDER IDENTITY MOVIE ..?? enough already .. the ending left more questions than it answered and not in a good way .. the choppy method in the body of this movie had you wondering what the meaning was for each scene and new personality .. each person/interaction was nice enough .. just no Direction in where the storyline takes you .. with much ambiguity in its intent, and over-worked subject matter (when again it Could hav been so much More ..!) thusly means I am forced to giv this one only 2 stars .
There is a strong element of possession or/and obsession with the object of our affection, the object of our love. Is A in love with Rhiannon or obsessed with her? Are they the same thing? Are they opposite sides of the same coin? That which we call love, especially teen-age love is strongly obsessive/possessive. A, the non-gender-specific spirit, cannot leave her alone- a sign of obsession. But there is no answer to that question. Okay. A spirit that must move from body to body every day. It's an interesting concept. How did the movie handle the theme? Not badly. The movie was okay. It is probably going to appeal more to the younger age group than those past 35. The cinematography was good. The story had a little trouble finding its pace in the early parts, but does and flows nicely from there. The dialog was teen-speak, so I don't know if it was good dialog or not. The acting was uneven, IMO. Despite her billing, Ms Rice was only fair, She did not consistently display the range of emotions her character required, so she wasn't always believable. Among the other actors, there was a gap between the good and not so good. Some of the "A abductees" portrayed it believably and some, not at all. I found Mr Teague's portrayal of Alexander to be believable and relatable, and even heartfelt. Kudos to him. I would recommend this to young adults and say to those older than 35, it might not be your cup of tea.
I'd have given this a 5 star if it had actually explained the premise or solved it, it doesn't, it just leaves you in the same place you start which is the antithesis of the journey a story is supposed to take you on. It's cute and silly and romantic and decently done and if they'd have figured out how to give some sort of satisfaction or meaning in the ending, it would have been so much better. I hate writing a bad review, I hoped more from an ending, I can think of multiple ways to end it better than they did. Great premise, terrible ending, don't watch if you want something satisfying at the end. That is all.
