“This movie is spellbinding storytelling. It begins with such a simple premise and creates such a genuinely intriguing situation that we’re not just entertained, we’re drawn into the argument.”
-Roger Ebert

“What John Lone does with Charlie is one of the decade’s greatest performances. A tragic, deeply personal work that could easily have been parody but is instead genuinely compelling.”
-That Moment In

Harlan Ellison

The film will be preceded by a talk from Maooz Awan, PhD research fellow in Cryobiology at University College London, who will explore the realities of cryopreservation and what is possible with current technologies.
