A good movie

To be honest, this movie was not really a high priority but since it was on Netflix and since it was suggested by one of my favorite listal members, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it turned out to be a nice watch and I was above all surprised by how much it resembled 'Get Out', so far one of the biggest critical success released in 2017. Well, even though I did like 'Get Out', to be honest,  it didn't really blow me away though and, in fact, I thought that this movie was actually slightly better even if it was apparently barely seen when it was released. Indeed, I really enjoyed how ambiguous they managed to keep the whole thing and, as long as it remained so ambiguous, it was really quite captivating. Unfortunately, as soon as the truth was revealed, the whole thing went into auto-pilot and it became really generic.The fact that I figured out what they were up to rather early on didn't help either. Another thing that bothered me was the fact that the characters seemed slightly too young. Indeed, the main character had been married, got a child who died when he was about 10 years old, got divorced and finally met again his ex-wife after 2 years. Well, it seemed quite a lot for someone in his late 30's. Anyway, to conclude, even if it was nothing really ground-breaking, I thought it was still a solid thriller and it is definitely worth a look.

Glad you found it worth watching, even if you didn't appreciate it as deeply as I did. Interesting that you felt the main character seemed too young to have gone through what he had prior to the events of the film. I've got friends in their late 30s with teenage kids, so that didn't seem unreasonable to me at all.

Nowadays, most people starts to have kids at around 30-35 years old. I was a step-father at 23 years old and got a baby at 26 years old and when I would go to the kindergarten, I was always be by far the youngest one. But I guess it is something European as in the US, people might be slightly younger when they get their first kids.

Anyway, it wasn't really the fact that he had a kid, it was more the fact that so many things happened afterwards and, in my opinion, it would have worked better if the characters would have been around 50 years old instead.
