Starring: Anne Hathaway, Dan Stevens, Jason Sudeikis
Synopsis: Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who finds herself in relationship trouble with her sensible boyfriend, Tim (Dan Stevens), and is forced to move back to her tiny hometown to get her life back on track. She reconnects with childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis), a good-natured bar owner with a coterie of drinking buddies, and resumes her drinking lifestyle. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, a larger-than-life creature begins attacking Seoul, South Korea on a nightly basis, captivating spectators around the world. One night, Gloria is horrified to discover that her every move at a local playground is being mimicked on a catastrophic scale by the rampaging beast. Deconstructing the monster movie genre in wildly imaginative ways, writer-director Nacho Vigalondo unleashes a fantastical tale that also triumphs as a wholly original and subversive romantic comedy.
It’s a sci-fi/horror/psychodrama/comedy/thriller/revenge/romance film – and that jumble of a description not only works, it does so in spectacular fashion. -Toronto Star
From its weird little prologue to a nearly perfect ending, Colossal is a trip in multiple meanings of that word. -Richard Roeper
