Hey everybody! Have you heard the good news? There's a movie coming soon about Charles Darwin. The film, Creation is certainly going to rock. Let's just head on over to the film's website and read all about it, shall we?
From Recorded Picture Company, producers of such films as nine-time Academy Award winner The Last Emperor and Sexy Beast comes CREATION.
Well, I certainly enjoyed both of the films that are mentioned. So far so good.
Part ghost story, part psychological thriller, part heart-wrenching love story CREATION is the story of Charles Darwin and the single most explosive idea in history. Darwin’s great, still controversial, book The Origin of Species depicts nature as a battleground. In CREATION the battleground is a man’s heart.
Uh Oh...ghost story? They can't mean a literal ghost story, can they? I mean, that would just be stupid.
The Darwin we meet in CREATION is a young, vibrant father, husband and friend whose mental and physical health gradually buckles under the weight of guilt and grief for a lost child. Ultimately it is the ghost of Annie, his adored 10 year-old daughter who leads him out of darkness and helps him reconnect with his wife and family. Only then is he able to create the book that changed the world.
Uh...what the fuck?
Told in a collage of scenes from the past and present, laced with stories of exotic animals and the dark dreams of a troubled mind CREATION is a film that will provoke, entertain and ultimately deeply move you.
I think I'm ultimately going to be so deeply moved as to skip this one entirely.
Low marks all around on this piece of garbage.
