Advantageous ★★★½

A smart film of insight that I wish had better technical skill.

A future in which technology has expanded, but social morality has shrunk. A new ability to transfer minds into fresh, new bodies has emerged... and it becomes necessary because women have become even more sexualized, with children openly being prostitutes and older women unable to retain their work because they lack the conventional beauty they once had.

I love the way the film explores the personal aspects of sexual oppression, and how it relates to family and one's social life. But the CGI was awful, completely distracting and the editing was choppy. Still, there was some great acting by "unconventional-looking" artists, and it is wonderful to see Asian-Americans placed in non-stereotypical lead and supporting roles.
