Christopher Webster [Celluloid 04.30.11] movie news short scifi dystopic



Jessica Paré, the Montreal born actress who became famous overnight for becoming the unlikely new wife of Mad Men swinger Don Draper (John Ham), stars in the short dystopian film Beholder. Directed by Nisha Ganatra for the Futurestates project (which is like a politically charged, onlineTwilight Zone) the film has garnered some acclaim, so we're glad to be able to make it available for you here.

Synopsis:
Beholder takes place in the biosphere-protected Red Estates, a gated community with a socially conservative political majority. At a clinic where patients can genetically engineer their children, Sasha, the wife of rising political star Bobby Aryana, is informed that her baby carries the genetic marker for homosexuality. By the laws of Red Estates, this is an aberration that must be dealt with immediately, and Sasha must decide between staying faithful to the love of her life or risking everything. Touching on issues of race, sexual orientation, and conformity, Beholder examines the notion of identity and the costs of belonging.

Besides the lovely Paré, Beholder also stars Elaine Hendrix, Rupak Ginn (The Namesake), Michael McMillian (The Hills Have Eyes 2), Michael Mosley (27 Dresses) and Bonnie Kathleen Ryan (The Downlow).

Wow, that could've been a real mind-bender. It had the potential for some originality but quickly degenerated into typical Hollywood-Liberal rubbish. At least we got to see Pare, she's stunning.

Your video player is increadibly heavy, it makes processor usage jump to 100% on my dualcore. Closing the tab with the video reduces processor use to <10%
