Theatrical Premiere Run!

Friday, November 30 – Monday, December 3

(2018) dir Christopher Caldwell, Zeek Earl w/Sophie Thatcher, Pedro Pascal, Jay Duplass, Andre Royo, Sheila Vand, Anwan Glover [98 min; DCP]
In this exciting new sci-fi western, a teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They’ve secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon’s toxic forest, known as “The Green.” But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with The Green’s other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father’s greeda-ddled judgment, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape.

PROSPECT is anchored by great performance from Sophie Thatcher, the young lead in her feature film debut, and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as the roguish antagonist. With standout production design that helps to immerse us in this imagined future by creating convincingly junky yet still futuristic equipment and settings, the film makes sparing use of special effects to create an otherworldly experience on a budget. Staff Pick: Kim

“‘Prospect’ has one thing that most indie sci-fi movies don’t, and which any human desperately needs when traveling to unfamiliar worlds: atmosphere.” – Peter Debruge, Variety

“‘Prospect’ is the Best Indie Science Fiction Movie Since ‘Moon.’” – Jacob Hall, SlashFilm

“It’s a defiantly DIY indie, one that takes place in a richly designed sci-fi world, full of gonzo weapons, clunky spaceships, and lived-in locales.” – Brian Raftery, WIRED
