    Advantageous 2015

    ★★★½ Added

    How far would you go to give your child a good life? In a world where jobs are scarce and times are tough for women in particular a single mom makes the ultimate sacrifice.
    This movie takes a bit to set up a second half that should have had longer to play out. Sometimes you wish a film had a little more money to play with in the looks department. Its supposed to be a futuristic world, but it doesn't…

    Now I have to see more of Ben Afflecks films.

    Besides taking abit to set everything up I can't really find any flaws in this movie. The airport scene was my favorite, especially when the guy is explaining to the soldier what the Argo movie will be about.
