HipZOMJoint Movie Pick of the Week 3/15/19: Captive State

Captive State gives us our first big science-fiction film of the new year (without a superhero). The film follows a young African-American man who gets caught up in a rebellion against an alien race that has already invaded Earth and won.

The film is directed by Rise of the Planet of the Apes helmer Rupert Wyatt. It stars John Goodman, Ashton Sanders, Jonathan Majors, Machine Gun Kelly, and Vera Farmiga.

The film is about an oppressive group and the resistance force trying to rise up against it. The film explores the lives of a Chicago neighborhood on both sides of the conflict: the collaborators and the dissidents. A timely film for very divisive time in our country.

Captive State is now playing at a theater near you.
