The very best sci-fi movies are the ones that go beyond ooh-ing and ahh-ing at cool gadgets, to dig into the thornier questions of what these technologies mean for humankind, and what they can tell us about ourselves. And that’s what makes the award-winning Sundance drama Advantageous look so intriguing.
Directed by Jennifer Phang, Advantageous features a newfangled procedure that allows people to transfer their consciousness into a new body. But the story is really about a single mother (Jacqueline Kim) who, through various social and economic forces, is forced to consider undergoing the process in order to secure a brighter future for her young daughter (Samantha Kim).
We’re pleased to debut an exclusive Advantageous poster in advance of its premiere. Hit the jump to check it out and learn more about the film.
