When hard drinking party animal Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is kicked out of the apartment she shares with boyfriend Tim (Dan Stevens), she returns to her derelict childhood home to take some time and reevaluate her life. There she reconnects with childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis) who offers her a job in his bar. Then things get weird as a news reports emerge of a monster terrorizing Seoul. Then things really get weird. And they get get really really weird.
Colossal is a sci-if drama monster comedy (it's not as messy as it sounds) about an ordinary life that suddenly becomes extraordinary. Great performances from the cast bring this quirky and original story to life. Essentially it’s a film about self responsibility, addiction, jealousy and mysogeny, but presented in a most unconventional way, But it's best to know as little as possible before going in and just enjoy the ride. Enjoyable.
