Con­tin­uum

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - DVD & Blu-Ray -

Re­lease Date: 9 March

2013 | 15 | DVD

Nope, this isn’t a spin- off film from the TV show, and don’t be fooled by the fact that Gil­lian An­der­son’s face is fore­most on the cover – its star is ac­tu­ally Ha­ley Joel Os­ment. He plays a ge­nius uni­ver­sity stu­dent who em­barks upon a mission to find out what hap­pened to his the­o­ret­i­cal physi­cist fa­ther ( a mumbly Ru­fus Sewell), 12 years af­ter he mys­te­ri­ously van­ished with­out a trace, leav­ing his poor wife ( An­der­son) a wreck.

Con­tin­uum is less a sci- fi thriller and more a de­cent lit­tle drama that would also work well if it were a play, with char­ac­ters talk­ing about their feel­ings as much as they do al­ter­nate uni­verses, quan­tum physics and time­lines. Most SF fans will have seen this all be­fore, but the per­for­mances – and the odd sud­den twist – do make it worth a look.
