Kudos for making this film sound like a scifi-horror from the title. Too bad it was another YA novel-driven Hunger Games wannabe.
Wow how good is Michael Douglas, am I right? Actually everyone in this was so fantastic and Liberace is such an interesting character (no surprise there). Soderbergh really pulled this together into a very cohesive, funny and emotional piece. With such a diverse filmography I wasn't sure what to expect from him with this particular narrative and aesthetic - needless to say the result speaks for itself.
I wanted to love this more than I actually loved this. There are some nice moments, the music has some great songs but overall I didn't find it entirely satisfying. The story and dynamic between the two sisters is fantastic to see and is a great narrative for young girls to be exposed to (unlike the perpetual damsel in distress that has inhabited Disney films for so long).
