Updated on February 22, 2019

Nathan is a film critic and aspiring author with a true passion for the film industry & hopes his writings will help launch his careers.

Mute Date is the very thing Hollywood needs right now: originality. The film molded comedy, drama, romance, and sci-fi into one giant, glorious sculpture. Where most films falter, this film succeeded and gives future filmmakers a new bar to work toward.

The film follows two strangers, Noah and Erica, who have been chosen at random to be guinea pigs in new tech that's in its beta testing phase. Basically, the two ingest a pill which floods their bodies with nanocells which allow them to communicate telepathically with each other. As the date commences, the two of them discover themselves, each other, and just how dangerous this new tech could be if introduced to the public.

Okay, I just have to brag on this movie a little bit. I was impressed with how innovative writer/director Cody Clarke's idea was. I loved the idea he presented, no spoilers included (sorry). Trust me when I say, the story's outcome is something that's been hinted at before but most films focus on the aftermath and consequences rather than showing the audience the beginning of it all. The humor involved made the characters relatable, so much so that the film becomes more than a film but rather a possibility and, to some extent, a warning. Mr. Clarke doesn't take his film to an over-the-top extent but rather keeps it grounded, focusing solely on these two strangers and their journey. The material was presented so brilliantly that the ending is actually rather shocking and unexpected.

Anthony Kapfer and Nina Tandilashvili brought a sense of vulnerability to their roles, especially during their "date". It felt realistic, like I was actually watching these two discover themselves and each other, awkwardness and all. The awkward moments aren't a downfall by any means because that's how people actually behave. One maybe feels confident while the other is panicking on the inside, not knowing what to say or worried they'll bore the other. It was honest and straightforward and had a purity about it.

In conclusion, Mute Date was a huge success for me and I would recommend it to anyone, regardless of what genre a person may prefer. I give the film a 4 out of 4.
