Young Ones sounded like a pretty familar sci-fi set up - a family tries to survive in a future where water is scarce. But this trailer suddenly has be intrigued.
I think its the sense of style which makes it seem a little more interesting that most post apocalyptic stories. There's a generous use of first person (especially from Michael Shannon) and a mix of dilapidation and high tech which is most appealing.
Then there's the cast, including Shannon, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and Kodie Smit-McPhee. They can bring serious weight to decent subject matter and writer/director Jake Paltrow (yes, brother of the other Paltrow) looks like he has all the pieces in place to make a big splash with only his second film.
The film debuted at Sundance in January and met with some mixed reactions, mostly praising the visuals and the world building. Those are things I like so I'm still looking forward to this.
Young Ones is on general release in October 2014.
