Icon Film Distribution has announced Drake Doremus’ EQUALS, starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult is out today on VOD and DVD.
A sci-fi romance, EQUALS tells the story of Silas and Nia who defeat the odds and find love in a world where emotion and relationships are forbidden.
To celebrate the release, a new featurette entitled ‘Silas + Nia’, featuring Kristen Stewart, Nicholas Hoult and director Drake Doremus discussing working together to bring these lead characters to life, has been released.
EQUALS takes place in a colourless, post-apocalyptic society – known as The Collective – where its inhabitants have been genetically modified between conception and birth to be “emotion-free.” Consequently, emotion, love, and sex have been outlawed.
Silas (Nicholas Hoult), an illustrator in The Collective, mysteriously starts experiencing feelings and realises he has become afflicted with “Switched-On-Syndrome.” As Silas is grappling with his new, undisclosed condition, he finds himself drawn to Nia (Kristen Stewart), a fiction writer, who he soon discovers is also emotionally alive, and also hiding the condition.
EQUALS stars Kristen Stuart, Nicholas Hoult, Bel Powley and Guy Pearce and is directed by Drake Doremus.
