Back then, when she was known as the star of the “Twilight” films, the idea of living in a world without emotion might have perhaps appealed to her. That’s the premise of her new film, “Equals,” which is about a futuristic society where humans have been stripped of feelings because they cause too much physical and mental anguish.
But now, at 26, Stewart is repelled by the idea of withholding emotion. In fact, it’s something she’s often not even capable of.
Screencaps are coming.
Tribeca Film Festival : Equals, directed by Drake Doremus, written by Nathan Parker. (USA) – US Premiere, Narrative.
