Fast Color (2019)



Critic Consensus: A grounded superhero story with more on its mind than punching bad guys, Fast Color leaps over uneven execution with a single Gugu Mbatha-Raw performance.

The story crafted in images is mysterious and moving, whether in the quick flashes of memory that invade Ruth's psyche, or the beautiful special effects that render the women's unique abilities.

When all the puzzle-like pieces come together, the movie's characters, story, score and emotions soar. The pace of that progress may feel slow, but things never get too quiet. It's a movie with a racing pulse, and you can feel its heart in every frame.

By finding the right note of empathy, Hart creates a space for the audience to share their doggedly earned hope.
