The new film is about a young girl who gets kidnapped onto a hidden ecosystem where a tribal war is raging over a form of pollen that breaks the relationship between aging and time. It follows a friendship-love story-adventure of her and a joyous, reckless, pleasure-mongering young boy as they swirl in and out of youth and as the ecosystem around them spirals toward destruction. We’re working on it all day every day, but as all psychotic adventures go, you know where your destination is but not how long it’s going to take to get there.
I just can't with this right now. This sounds AWFUL! Please, please Benh...think of anything else. I get the whole 'quirky, environmental, elemental' vibe thing, but this just sounds like an ill-advised amalgam of 'Avatar' and 'Fern Gully'. This sounds so...dumb.
I have faith in you Benh, but this just sounds like a messy attempt to be interesting, and it sounds forced. I LOVED 'Beasts of the Southern Wild', but this has me questioning his longevity as a director and his taste level. I just hope this winds up better than it sounds.
Or he's joking. I honestly hope that he is joking.
