There Are No Small Parts, No Small Actors in Colossal

Some indie films rely on big ideas, and the one behind this film is as big as its title might suggest.

Colossal is the story of a writer, played by Anne Hathaway, who can’t stop partying and get her life together. After her handsome British boyfriend — Downton Abbey heartthrob Dan Stevens — kicks her to the curb, she moves back to her small hometown and reconnects with a childhood friend played by SNL veteran Jason Sudeikis. Now here’s the Big Idea: when Hathaway enters the small playground across from her childhood home, a colossal Godzilla-like monster materializes in Seoul, South Korea and mirrors her exact movements, destroying large portions of the city and causing mounting terror. THE WORD: There are many twists in this story, which I won’t spoil since they are high points; suffice it to say that (despite the intricate set-up it takes to get there) the film’s parting message defies expectations.
