In Your Eyes is a romance with sci-fi appeal

27/11/2015

In Your Eyes, a sci-fi-romance starring Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David, will debut on Blu-ray and DVD. Selina Chong Films will be releasing through Gryphon Entertainment January 20.

In an era of remote communication and increasing isolation the long distance relationship is no longer an impossibility like it once was. In Your Eyes, directed by Brin Hill and written by Joss Whedon (The Avengers), who also serves as executive producer, explores the interaction of two complete strangers hooked up on a psychical connection as each comes to terms with the limits of a unique shared experience. Rebecca (Kazan) is married to a successful doctor in a detached marriage of convenience in New England. On the other side of the country in arid New Mexico, Dylan (Stahl-David) is out of prison struggling to make the best of a fresh start. It's when this dissimilar couple realise they have a unique metaphysical bond that their very different lives get turned upside down.

This telepathic bond allows them to see, hear and feel the other's experience. But in order to communicate they are often talking aloud and alone. This, for comic effect, exposes their newfound intimacy to friends and strangers.

Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, In Your Eyes also features Nikki Reed (Twilight) and Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing).
"The two of them play so well off of one another despite being displaced by an entire timezone that the sceptical part of the mind never has reason to begin assaulting their situation," notes The Film Stage.

"Fans of Whedon's television output should be pleasantly surprised to find many Whedonisms throughout," notes Fox News.
