Advantageous ★★★½

There is nothing fiercer then a mother's love.
-Isa Cryer

Smart science fiction that challenges the viewer with ideas and social commentary on gender equality and race. Written by Jennifer Phang and Jacqueline Kim while Phang directs and Kim stars.

What I loved is that it's commentary wasn't only about today's society, but the past and future. While women want the next generation to have it better, are their sacrifices simply a vicious cycle that continues with simply the environment changing over time?

It's highlighted by a great performance from Jacqueline Kim in a film that suggests the same issues for women might never go away, instead certain aspects are simply more subtle while others are more extreme.

It has as much to say about our past as our future.
