Storyline Heading
The story of Dr. Ian Gray, a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the eye. He finds his work permeating his life after a brief encounter with an exotic young woman who slips away from him. As his research continues years later with his lab partner Karen, they make a stunning scientific discovery that has far reaching implications and complicates both his scientific and spiritual beliefs. Traveling half way around the world, he risks everything he has ever known to validate his theory.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Sci-Fi - This is an independent drama with some science fiction and fantasy elements, but one without any sort of effects and such that one would associate with the genre. Fans of star Michael Pitt will enjoy though Brit Marling has only a supporting role. Language, sexual situations, and mature subject matter makes the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good It's also a remarkably confident film technically. Cinema has had a love affair with the eye for a century now and Cahill and cinematographer Markus Förderer take the timeless image of the eye and give it emotional resonance in the way they use it, balancing the film's two equally important halves.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Good I Origins is a small movie with extra-large ambitions: a globe-spanning faith-vs.-science thriller/French New Wave-style romance/metaphysical tease on a Sundance budget. If that sounds more than a little pretentious, it is. It's also strangely affecting.

NY Post Full Review
Good Part sci-fi, part medical thriller, part romantic drama, "I Origins" has a pleasing way of working expansive ideas into a suspenseful, twisting story line, even if it occasionally has to wrench the story around tight turns.
