On March 15th the new Science Fiction film "Upside Down" will open in limited theaters.
The film, starring Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst, tells the story of Adam and Eden who fall in love as teens despite the fact that they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions. Ten years after a forced separation, Adam sets out on a dangerous quest to reconnect with his love.
The film has scored negative reviews with a 33 percent aggregate score on Rotten Tomatoes. The Village Voice stated that "Dunst is radiant, as always, though it's radiance with depth: She's not just your average dream girl; she's gravity's rainbow. But there just isn't enough of her."
Entertainment Weekly gave the film a C- and stated, "Upside Down is a very fancy piece of junk."
The New York Observer was more favorable stating, "True originality is so rare that it's a treat to welcome a movie as completely different and provocative as Upside Down. It's unlike anything you have ever seen."
Schmoes Know complimented director Juan Diego Solana stating, "Solanas directs a film that's like nothing I've ever seen before."
Sturgess last starred in "Cloud Atlas" alongside Halle Berry, Tom Hanks Jim Broadbent, Ben Whishaw and Hugo Weaving.
