Preview: Natural Selection (2012)


A religious couple are unable to have a child, but when her husband dies, a widow goes on a trip to find his lost son, a troubled adult who struggles to break out of his rut.

  • Poster: C


Is her sign of affection love, appreciation or something else. The trouble with this kind of poster is that its purpose is mysterious and even after seeing the trailer, I can't quite figure out what the point is.

  • Trailer: B-


I don't really need the critics to tell me that Rachael Harris is a discovery, the trailer does a fine job displaying that on its own, but when the surrounding film looks fairly unexciting, I guess you need all the support you can get.

Oscar Prospects:

Can Rachael Harris become the breakout star of the year or like Elizabeth Olsen, win several critics prizes and then be ignored by the Academy. My thought is the latter.
