Leave The World Behind Movie Review: Julia Roberts, Mahershela Ali Bolster This Unsettling End-Of-The-World Drama
About Leave The World Behind
Leave the World Behind: NarrativeThe Sandfords leave behind New York City for a some time away in the suburbs in a sudden vacation. However, soon after they arrive, strange occurrences around them are hard to ignore. The biggest one being the owners of the house, the Scotts, return to take shelter. The sense of unease grows as they are cut off from technology including phones and the internet. Soon, they have to come to terms with what's happening around them.
Leave the World Behind: Writing and DirectionMr Robot creator Sam Esmail, who is also writer and producer on the project, creates a disconcerting scenario where everyone is unsure of how to act. However, Esmail shows some of the outside terror, while making the threat very real for all involved. Leave the World Behind is a different kind of mystery that keeps the action centered around its protagonists. But that doesn't mean that the film doesn't contain any special effects that both amaze and chill you.
Leave the World Behind: PerformancesOscar winners Julia Roberts and Mahershala Ali's strong performances keep you invested as they deal with anxiety and distrust of what's happening around them. Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke's character clay is the more easy-going one of the group and the actor too delivers.
Leave the World Behind: CritiqueThe stellar cinematography by Tod Campbell is also off kilter to show a world off balance. There are extreme angles, long surveilling tracking shots, zoom ins and close up to create an eerie mood. Even with a minimal cast, the feature film displays the growing threat in the outside world that can threaten to take over.
