Prodigy


On Netflix as of the date of this post

Summary:


Rating: TV-14

Could I have watched this with my Dad? : Yeah, but he might not have cared for it.

Could I have watched this with my Mom? : Maybe, but she would NOT have liked it, and she would have kept my Dad up all night wanting to talk about it.

Language: Yes.

Violence/Gore: No. There are a few intense/threatening moments, but nothing I would really call violence.



Did I feel the need to leave the lights off and sit in silence afterwards? : Yes, at least for a little bit.

Was there a food pairing? : Yes. Stir fry. A bit sticky, but I made it so I can't really complain.

Thoughts: This movie was not quite what I was expecting, but to be honest I didn't really know what to expect. I felt the film moved a bit slowly, but by the end I realized that was appropriate for the movie. I think Netflix was very accurate in calling this film, "Cerebral." It is very psychological, but not it a "psychological thriller" way or a "you have to be smart and philosophical" way or even in an "Inception" way. It is hard to describe, really. I guess the best way is to say that the film is really based around the psychology of the main character.

Was this a good use of a night with the house to myself? : I think so. While it was a...tame film, my Mom would not have like it, and my Dad probably wouldn't have cared for it much either. 4 out of 5 stars, I liked the slow build up and reveal, but since I didn't know what to expect I was somehow just a little disappointed.
