A more serious version of Crocodile Dundee, this fine film is enlightening and charming, tinged with sadness

Theo (Theo Ikummaq) is an Inuit who loves to walk on the ice, with the sky above him. But, the elders of his region are VERY worried. The climate seems to be changing, getting warmer, and this upsets the balance of nature. This is true for Inuit, animals, and plants. Therefore, after having dreams of a giant killer sun, the elders send Theo on airplane to New York City. Once there, this relatively young man is to "find the native elders" and hatch some plans to save the arctic. But, alas, when Theo makes it to Manhattan, no one seems to know where the elders are. Happily, Chloe (Dakota Johnson), a homeless but bright woman, takes him under her wing. This includes leading him to a secret hideaway which she and a few others call home. After much discussion, these folks are convinced Theo's best chance is to talk to the large groups of "elders" at the United Nations. Unfortunately, they reject his plea and, when Chloe gets mad, the young lady lands in jail. Fortunately, a smart lawyer (Mira Sorvino) comes to help the whole group, including making plans to raise funds for Theo to broadcast his concerns. Then, tragedy strikes. Will the world know that all peoples must work together to combat climate change? This fine film has a Crocodile Dundee feeling, as Theo is very much an outsider in the big city. But, there is a far more serious tone, as Theo's message is extremely important. Even so, there are light-hearted moments, with Theo exhibiting a natural charm. Johnson, Sorvino, and the rest of the cast is quite wonderful, too. The scenes in the Arctic are beyond beautiful in their harsh ways while the NYC setting, costumes, great script and careful direction complete the movie in fine fashion. Want to see something sweet, moving, and unusual at the same time? Theo and Chloe's journey is a most excellent adventure.

The global warming theme on a smaller scale.

An independent film about a man from the Arctic who is sent by his elders to the New York City to seek a permanent solution they are facing due to the assault on the nature by the southern people. I have heard it was based on the real, but for the lack of source I can't confirm how much true it is. For the voices over the global warming and considering recently concluded 'climate change conference' in Paris, I thought giving it a try would uplift my spirit on this matter.

Definitely a good idea for a film, a serious theme, even though it did not turn out to be as I hoped for, had a little fun watching it. A short film, not even exceeded the 80 minute mark. Since it was a low profile flick, there's no big casting or the grand spending for making it, but merely an alright film. It was dull in parts due to the stretch, otherwise could have made it a fantastic short film. And a bit it looks like a cross of documentary and feature film in the narration part.

"Life is so full of difficulties. But in my homeland, our sense of family bond us together. Like a warm coat against the cold wind."

What I think about the movie is, it was not bad, as well as brilliant. Very predictable, especially the end went as I expected, that's sad. But a couple of scenes in the entire film were somewhat out of the ordinary. More like it was for the children that deals on the global warming, but for the adults and their matured minds, it kind of fails to convince due to a shortfall of exploration on the subject.

You know it only brought the serious topic on-board, but the intention was not given to explain it, or discuss them. So I feel it missed the great opportunity to open up on the debate and spread the message as what a theme like this supposed to do.

After this I've watched a couple of other movies, but this will be the last review I'm writing on this blog for this year (2015). As a movie fanatic, I had another wonderful year and plenty of excellent films as well as so many bad ones. Finally, I wish all the WCA readers a very happy new year 2016. I'm hoping for another successful year ahead and try to keep the WCA alive utmost.

6.5/10

A decent comedy/drama revolving around the effects of consumerism and the necessity of sustainability.

Chloe & Theo is a film revolving around Theo, an Alaskan man from the Inuit tribe. Inuits are a tribe, whom live off of the frozen land in the arctic, consuming only what Nature provides them (Hunter/Gatherer lifestyle.) He's sent to New York by his tribe, he refers to as "the elders." His message is to warn "the south" as he calls it, of an imminent danger involving the fate of the world. When he arrives to the city, a runaway young lady named Chloe helps protect him from three muggers in an alleyway, and subsequently they become good friends. Chloe is smitten with Theo because of his "innocence and sense of purpose" and therefore makes it her mission to support him on his journey...

Although some details of the film are far-fetched, it does present valid points based in reality. The detriment of consumerism, pollution, and our responsibility to take care of the environment we live in. It's not the most original plot, but the cinematography is entertaining nonetheless. All in all, some scenes might make the viewer laugh, and other scenes might make the viewer cry. Personally, I got emotional during a few scenes. All in all, I enjoyed the film despite the critics ratings, and I think if the viewer keeps an open mind, there is something important to be gained by watching this film.

"The television sets have the real power. They compel you to buy things you do not need, and envy things that are worthless... They mock the way you look, and affect your happiness. What can your leaders do about your nature, when it is so corrupted that when you live each day it's based on consuming, devouring, and wasting? Never happy until there's nothing left. My message should be for my own people: 'We must prepare for the sun's kiss, for it's surely coming sooner than we think." - Theo
