When the Central Park Singer is shown playing the guitar, his strumming does not match the music you hear. This is true for both the shot through the sound hole and when he is seen directly in a frontal shot. See more »
Oh man, I'm going to ache tomorrow.
Those weren't the right elders.
How did you get here?
Look, you wanted to see old folks and I showed you old folks.
Is that what happens to people here when they get old?

Maybe the script isn't as vigorous as you'd expect but it has some intense purposeful emotional idea and that's what made it enjoyable in its couple of final scenes.
So the movie started really slow and cold ;) just talking and talking and some weird language from "the north" until Chloe appears still talking about herself and the man she's met !! then things got a little interesting with the funny looking "freaking Eskimo" so it started to get a bit funny with Chloe steal from the Retirement home :D
So whether we agree or disagree on the importance of global warming issue ,, the movie amazingly shines a light on this making it so purposeful and it gets really emotional while Theo starts telling the story of how the "men of the south" and their capacity of destruction and their need for expansion effects other on the planet... but again it went back to be humors .. so the Genre is not so much Drama as it has comedy, thrill too and some emotional statements in the final scenes ..
The performance of Dakota Johnson is applaudable, Mira Sorvino and the others .. Theo Ikummaq was also so good, for him it's like just be there and here you are a rigid strong Eskimo or Enoch !! ;)
See the problem here was maybe all the monologues it kinda felt more like a documentary in some parts and the script could have been so much stronger and tighter .. but it felt like switching from talking to yourself to a regular scene again and again .:P
Overall ,, Maybe the script is not as strong or vigorous as you'd expect but it has some intense purposeful emotional idea and that's what made it enjoyable and catchy especially in the second half.
