Cornwall - Feb. 13, 2012 - Following a long slew of action movies that provide nothing but explosions and bloodshed, Chronicle is a refreshing look at humanity stretched too far. The science fiction film directed by Josh Trank and written by Max Landis follows a group of three boys who make an amazing discovery. The film is viewed through a series of cameras, the main one being that of Andrew.

Andrew, his cousin Matt, and Matt’s friend Steve find and document their discovery of a mysterious hole in the Earth, which pulses with a strange sound. They venture inside only to find a large glowing object. They touch it, which causes them to have nosebleeds, and the object to glow red before the camera goes black. Later, the boys demonstrate telekinetic powers, which grow with use.

Andrew is a young boy who is bullied by his abusive alcoholic of a father while his mother lies in bed, dying of cancer. A school, he continues to be bullied by his classmates, his only refuge being the power he now has, and the friends he made through its discovery.

This is a story of the corruption power provides to a tortured soul, the solace friends provide, and the struggle between doing what is right and saving that which is dearest to you. Chronicle provides a thrilling experience for action fans, while still catering to those who want a bit of heart to their story, making it the perfect film for those of all ages.

Chronicle was released on February 3rd, 2012 and is rated PG-13. It has received mostly positive reviews, many saying that the film is refreshing in a time of repetitive documentary films that don’t quite hit the mark.
