I normally do not do movie reccomendations, but this one deserves some attention.
I normally link to the wikipedia site, but it has spoilers. Here is the IMDB entry.
It is an odd little movie, with no budget. In fact, the entire movie takes place in one room and a porch. You will recognize some of the actors from various “Star Trek” projects, but this is strictly a no-frills movie.
The screen writer, Jerome Bixby wrote some of the better original “Star Trek” episodes, including ” Mirror, Mirror” and “Requiem for Methuselah.”
In short, the movie follows the discussion between a group of highly educated academics and a man claiming to be 14,000 years old. It is a very philosophical movie and worth your time.
Fair warning, it has no budget and sometimes the acting and script are a bit wooden. Regardless, one of the better movies I have seen this year.
