Reviews & comments

An original, thoughtful, satirical dystopian nightmare.

A surreal trip through a black mirror to the twilight zone that takes the suburban middle-class family home-owning dream to the extreme. Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg trapped in the seemingly infinite, identical houses of ‘Yonder’, in an original, thoughtful, satirical dystopian nightmare.

A low-key science-fiction thriller whose obvious existential themes are well-served by a clever, confident execution that finds new ways to explore the hells of parenthood, commitment and ageing.

The movie leaves the audience every bit as numb as the characters are supposed to be.

It is a superior genre piece at heart, but elevated by its high-calibre leads Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg, plus a script rich in political and cultural resonance.
