Reviewed by Ronald Weel - Unbelievable Performance

I've been a Kristin Stewart fan since I saw "Speak". I had hoped her
professional career would blossom. And due to a kind of "small scale" movie called "Twilight", and it's many sequels....my hopes have, indeed, been realized.
This film, however, should most certainly NOT be overlooked! The story line is very interesting, though "dysfunctional", and the acting from nearly everyone is outstanding. But the real Kudo's go to Kristen, in her
portrayal of a high school girl afficted with a neurological disorder called " Frederich's Attaxia", which is somewhat similar to Muscular
Dystrophy, but with it's own peculiar quirks. Just as "proof" of her performance, after I had already seen the film, I invited a couple over to watch it with me later, and told them that Ms. Stewart was an actress who really
had this disease, and how well she did in the movie. ( They'd never seen her in anything else, of course). They said they were amazed at how well she did, given her disability. After it was over, I told them it was
all "acting", and that she was perfectly normal. Just listen to the Kudo's
her co-actors gave her, in the "Special Features" portion of the DVD.
Also....don't miss the film "Into the Wild", in which she gives a short, but poignant
performance....PLUS the movie is VERY good, to say the least.
Oh....just in case you didn't guess....I'm a member of the Kristen
Stewart Fan Club!!

Enjoy your movie watching, everyone !

This movie was amazing, so much better than I expected. The characters were real and believable and Kristen Stewart gave a compelling performance.


Reviewed by a reader - Sweet

I actually saw this movie before seeing Twilight and very much enjoyed it. I thought Kristen did a great job and is why I even bothered to watch Twilight. I believed her as a tragically sick girl and while the relationship between her and Beagle wasn't romantic, it clearly appeared that after the special night, things could go in that direction. This movie is one of those little surprises that you might not expect at first glance.

Reviewed by Amanda Wilkinson - It is better to feel than to have never felt at all

This movie was beautiful and moving.
We definitely live in a world today where we are taught to be un-feeling or happy and nothing else. We say it is wrong to feel stress, anxeity, depression etc so here is a pill and strategies to deal so you can be "happy" or stay focused on your goals. Even if that's not your case I bet we all wish there were times we could just stop our emotions.The movie shows the beautiful complexity of life and how it is all worth feeling.
It is better to feel that to have never felt anything at all.


Reviewed by Jana Goudy - Loved it.

I LOVED this movie. I'm adding this to my favorites. I can't get it out of my head.

I'm slightly annoyed with the comments that this plot has been done to many times for this movie to be interesting. One person said they've seen this type of movie 6 times in the last 10 years. That's not bad at all, especially if you think of all the basic action movies and romantic comedies that come out every year. Although this movie does fit in a genre it was still unique and interesting and suspenseful. It was just a beautiful movie, with a good plot and good acting. It just worked well.

It's a slow paced movie but it's not boring at all. Ive watched movies that are too slow and lost interest in them but this ones not to slow for me. Every shot is art.

Overall just good. My favorite Kristen Stewart movie. I hope she keeps doing stuff like this.


Reviewed by Climbyourarms - Romeo and Juliet in a modern, dystopian society, with a nice twist.

Don't watch this movie if you are looking for mindless entertainment. You need to immerse yourself in Equals to really appreciate it. This is not Equilibrium, an action/thriller, which is great in it's own way, this is a movie that is beautiful in it's subtleties. There are scenes in this movie, between Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult, where they don't speak a word, but it tells a million word story of desire, lust, love, all wrapped up in a simple touch, or a close up shot of Kristen taking a ragged breath.
Imagine the days when you were younger, those private moments with your first love. All those new experiences, fueled by emotion, you have no idea what you are doing, all you know is that you want it, you can't think of anywhere else you want to be but right there, and you have a small hint of what the director of this movie brilliantly captured.
All that aside, the movie is slow, but the chemistry between Nicholas and Kristen is incredible. I won't give any spoilers, but most of the way through, something will happen, and plans will be made where you will think, oh great. I've invested this much time for such a weak ending? It happened to me, anyway, but keep watching until the end, and then see the lovely twist. In my opinion Nia, Kristen's character, suffers a fate worse than death with what happens, but again, a simple gesture at the end gives a hint that there's a little hope.

At first it seems to move slow but if you can stick with it through the first 15-20minutes, it only is setting up the story. A beautiful love story told through limited dialogue and I found it riveting. Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart nailed it, you not only could see the chemistry between them but you feel it!!!

Reviewed by Julia Valdary - but when I tell you it is now my new favorite movie, I'm not kidding

I don't know how the hell I have never heard of this movie up until now, but when I tell you it is now my new favorite movie, I'm not kidding. It is so mind-numbingly good. This is such a delicate film that teaches viewers about the value of human emotions and the impact that love can have on any society. By far, the best movie I've seen in a really long time-so SO good. I am in awe of the amount of rawness and authenticity the main characters have in such a pristine and perfect world.


Reviewed by JHall - Five Stars

excellent....sparse and deep. Nicholas Hoult is perfection. LOVED IT


Reviewed by Kristen - I am someone who normally chooses movies like Jurassic Park and the Bourne series

I am someone who normally chooses movies like Jurassic Park and the Bourne series. I like noise and lots of action, so it took me a bit to settle down and enjoy this movie. It is slow, but as many of the reviewers here point out, it is a truly beautiful film. The acting is spot on, and despite the pace - or because of it - there is tension building throughout the movie, especially knowing how much could go wrong for the characters.

I highly recommend watching this.


Reviewed by ken wenman - Our Future?

Equals was the movie like I've been waiting for...the whole concept of what futuristic life might be like, was just interesting! This film reminded me a little of George Orwell's 1984. With all the film did in acting, it wasn't like 1984 George Orwell, but, His book came to mind seeing "Equals." The acting and movie seemed a bit boring a little, but when excitement picks up, I was glued to my tablet! Watch to the end; the end is wonderful!!!


Reviewed by C - If you like semi-weird movies

I went into this movie with a neutral feeling and finished with loving it. The movie reminded me of a mix of The Hunger Games, Romeo and Juliet, and Divergent; but it still had its own twist and twang to it. The acting was marvelous, exactly how it was supposed to be, and the ending is for once not how typical movies end. If you like semi-weird movies, definitely watch it. It is good entertainment and a beautiful picture.


Reviewed by Linda Q. - All as equals

I really appreciated this film. It was less about story and more about emoting feelings in the audience. I think it's minimalist structure really allowed the director to get creative with the way he used the lighting and other elements of cinematography to paint a picture. And to argue the power of touch and emotional memory. The director and two lead actors, especially Nicholas Hoult, really shined here. All as equals.

I origally rented this after seeing the trailer. I watched it again on Amazon prime. It strangely reminded me of the movie Pleasantville which sounds weird because one is a comedy/feel good film and the other a sci fi drama/love story. I guess the resemblance is that humans are meant to be flawed not perfect and are better for it. The acting is great and the ending was better on second watch.

Reviewed by Sparatik - Awesome Ultramodern Love Story!

A beautiful story of mad love, reminding me of the series Black Mirror. Their reality isn't too far from our current reality. For me the foundation of the story was totally believable with the exception of a few details. I was never once left questioning or feeling like I needed more. Perhaps I'm biased because I adore Nicholas Hoult. :-)


Reviewed by Amazon Customer - but I loved it. Yes

I didn't know what to expect from this movie, but I loved it. Yes, it is slow but I think that is what makes it so good. The build up and the tension between Nia and Silas is so great, and that one scene where they walk by each other is just so exquisite. Would recommend to anyone with a little patience and and interest in scifi.

Some of the best movies have mixed reviews. This is very thought provoking... If you think about all the thing that dumb us down today I.e.

I wasn't expecting much and the reviews were less than stellar. I really don't care for Kristen Stewart, but she actually made me cry a little. Not a lot, just kinda misty eyed. Nicholas Hoult more than made up for it. It was a bit slow, but that was the style of it and at least it was consistent. The premise is hard to imagine a bit scary. The ending is a bit ambiguous, but hopeful, so I'm going to imagine good things. I completely recommend this movie for futuristic romance buffs. Be prepared going in that it's not fast paced, but heart-wrenching for humanity as a whole. Apparently, the future is full of a-holes.

Surprised me. Not a fan of Woody Allen's last few films but this one was adorable. Thoroughly enjoyable. Romantic, fun and cute. As a costume designer I am a sucker for 1930'3 glam, which was in high form here. Fluffy with an enjoyable if somewhat predictable narrative. Worth the watch, enjoy.

Woody Allen did a great job with this movie. It's artsy, theatrical and has a solid story line. If you appreciate good film making, you will like this movie. When I say good, I mean the non-CGI type of movie where the story carries the movie and not the complexity of the action sequences.

I am usually the type of person who ends up being attracted to the plot in Woody Allen's films, but end up despising the films and turning them off 1/2 way thru. With Cafe Society I had the same expectation going in, but the added attraction of it starring Steve Carell, made me give it a try. I kept waiting for it to stink, and although there were a number of times when the main character, played by Jesse Eisenberg, sounded all too familiar to Woody himself, he caught the essence without demolishing the film. The final verdict is this is Absolutely the BEST Woody Allen Movie ever made! You owe it to yourself to give it a try.

Reviewed by Will L. - Woody Is Still Winning...

I've been a fan of WA movies since....forever. Bananas, maybe? Therefore, I consider myself certainly qualified and capable of writing down my opinion of this film. Look, I know he's made better movies...better written, better directed and better acted. But, for some damn reason, a reason which completely eludes me, Café Society could be my favorite Woody Allen movie. I loved it! It has a great look, for starters...it's just a beautiful movie to look at. I don't know if he did something different this time out, I just know it pops off the screen at you. It shines, it's glows, it's crisp and it's warm, the images sharper and more vibrant. Maybe he used a different kind of film, or a different make/model of camera, or did something different with the lighting. Maybe something in post production with the editing process, or whatever. All I know is this is a gorgeous looking movie.

The writing is Woody all the way. There is no mistaking that. The dialogue is still wrought with that Jewish angst, that unmistakable back-and-forth between his carefully drawn fully realized Jewish characters. Woody writes the most believable conversations in the business. It's very rich, flavorful and real. This is how people talk. And the dialogue in Café Society is near perfection.

The casting is brilliant. I won't go through the entire cast, character-by-character, but I will say they all fitted together beautifully. I'll admit to a big apprehension regarding Kristen Stewart. I was of the opinion, prior to seeing this, that she couldn't act. I've always considered her to be an actor with no range whatsoever. As bland and one dimensional as they come. In this, however, she was very good. Somehow Woody got an honest-to-goodness performance out of her. She actually showed some emotional range here. Another honorable mention: Steve Carrel. Terrific! Let me say that, although the casting as a whole was brilliant, there was no single outstanding performance. Together, though, they were superb. The big surprise was Kristen Stewart.

So, right now, today, this is my favorite Woody Allen movie. It wasn't too corny, too "jokey", too heavy, or too neurotic. It looked absolutely beautiful. The sets were fabulous, as was wardrobe. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Woody is a master.
