Empathy, Inc was reviewed out of The Philadelphia Film Festival. Release information forthcoming.

Empathy, a new sci-fi movie that explores a not-so-virtual reality, takes you on an unexpected turn of events. Joel, played by Zack Robidas, is having a major life crisis when he finds out his business partner has betrayed him. Losing everything he owns, he’s forced to move in with his in-laws. It doesn’t take long though, before he finds himself investing into another up and coming company with the help of his father-in-law. However, this company isn’t anything it’s portrayed to be.

This entire film is in black and white and starts off sort of weird. I wasn’t a fan of the movie in the beginning, but as I continued to watch it started to get a little better. This film reminded me of an old school episode of “The Twilight Zone.” While the directors explore the possibilities of technology and virtual reality, it will leave you wondering just what kind of technological abilities the future will bring. I do not recommend seeing it in theatres, as it will probably be on Netflix very quickly. That being said, it wasn’t the best sci-fi I have ever seen but it does explore a whole new twist on virtual reality and will leave you questioning the future of technology.

Rating: 2 out of 5
