Many media outlets reported that "Stewart describes Equals as a slightly updated version of the 1956 film 1984," or a romantic take of George Orwell's novel "1984." The film has nothing to do with the novel, which Drake Doremus later pointed out in a tweet. See more »

[propped up on his arm in bed with Nia]
I never could have imagined what love felt like. It's... strange... like a tornado going around and...
[laughs shyly, then turns serious]
That's why I was scared of it at first.
[nods several times]
It's about giving. Like, I want you to take everything. I don't even know what it is but I want you to take it from me.
I just wanna-
I wanna run.

A movie about suppressing emotions will make you pretty emotional
I don't think this film deserves the bad reviews it is receiving. Of course everyone has different opinions on a great film. Personally, a movie is good (or great or excellent) if it sticks with me for a while after. I found myself thinking about the main characters for a few days after watching it at the Toronto International Film Festival. This film made me feel many emotions for the characters -which is very ironic considering the main theme of Equals. I thought Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult had excellent chemistry and portrayed their characters so wonderfully, and that's an impressive accomplishment if you remember the characters for the most part are supposed to be emotionless.
