Our take

After several acclaimed, provocative short films, French filmmakers Caroline Poggi & Jonathan Vinel’s feature is a revelation. An intimate science-fiction film concerning a matriarch and her “orphans,” Jessica Forever is an enigmatic polemic on the power of platonic love in a pre-apocalyptic world.
