Carl Sagan would not like this movie. I kept waiting for it to get to the part where it steps back from these silly people and their stupid problems, gives them some dignity, and they make peace. But it never comes. The movie feels like it’s missing its third act. I wanted to like it, since it was written by Erin Cressida Wilson, whom I studied under in film school (took two of her screenwriting classes). But the nature documentary narration (in particularly bothersome in British accent) is the clincher – the story has no love for its characters. It has a lot to do with how things are being said (the main reason I wanted to watch it in the first place), but nothing much to say for itself.
