I found this one disappointing, but then I also wasn't a fan of Triangle so not entirely surprising.

I feel like this script probably began life as a story much simpler and more direct. The conflict between a rational scientist and a group of religious zealots is really all you need for pure dramatic power. So I loved the first act, got less enchanted as it went along but stayed hopeful (it wasn't bad!), and found the last act kinda silly. I have no idea how Jena Malone became a time traveler like Eleanor in Hill House (now that I think about it, Grace...almost becomes Donnie Darko??), and I don't think any amount of squinting will make it make sense, but I just rolled with it.
