In the future emotion, like love, has been erased from mankind's behavior. Everyone is on pills and their behavior is closely monitored by their sterile society. Silas (Nicholas Hoult) and Nia (Kristen Stewart) are two artists who begin having feelings for each other-and they have to keep this secret. Silas believes he has a disease-and we constantly hear references about this, how they are trying to find a cure for it but it's eventually fatal because the person either commits suicide or are put to death. Silas becomes member of a group, some of whom have been able to keep their "disease" secret. But when Nia is found to be pregnant-he has to rescue her.
EQUALS is an interesting movie, like a cross between THX-1138 and LOGAN'S RUN.
