I Origins

From the writer-director of the micro-budget, almost-there-but-not-quite sci-fi film Another Earth comes this equally contemplative piece of speculative fiction. Michael Pitt ("Boardwalk Empire") stars as a molecular biologist trying to trace the evolution of human eyes. One fateful night, he runs across a mysterious young woman with unique, gold-flecked eyes (Astrid Berges-Frisbey). She's his perfect woman, both professionally and personally--but her dogged belief in the spiritual world sets our protagonist up for a heady clash between science and faith. The film is gorgeous, romantic and head-twisting all at the same time. 107 minutes R.
