Drake Doremus has established himself as a darling of the indie world, having made waves with Like Crazy and Breathe In. Now the director is charting new territory with the dystopian romance film Equals. Check out the official teaser trailer below:
Equals is set in a futuristic utopian society where human emotions have been eradicated. However, after a new disease surfaces that causes feelings in its victims, everything changes for Silas (Nicholas Hoult). After becoming an outcast, he becomes drawn to his co-worker Nia (Kristen Stewart), who is also infected but hiding her condition.
The cool colour palette and sterile look of the film is the perfect setting for a simple love story to blossom, and with the added talents of Guy Pearce, Jacki Weaver, and Bel Powley in the cast, Equals is going to be an interesting watch.
