Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart star as star-crossed lovers in the intensely moving Equals, arriving on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) on September 6 from Lionsgate. Equals reveals the risks one couple takes for love in a world where feelings are considered a “disease.” The film had its world premiere at the 2015 Venice International Film Festival and was theatrically released by A24. Also starring Jacki Weaver and Guy Pearce, Equals will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively. Story by Drake Doremus. Screenplay by Nathan Parker. Directed by Drake Doremus.
In this gripping and emotional sci-fi romance from acclaimed director Drake Doremus (Like Crazy), Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult play Nia and Silas, two people who work together in a futuristic society known as “The Collective.” A seemingly utopian world, “The Collective” has ended crime and violence by genetically eliminating all human emotions. Despite this, Nia and Silas can’t help noticing a growing attraction between them, leading them to a forbidden relationship — at first tentative, but then exploding into a passionate romance. As suspicion begins to mount among their superiors, the couple will be forced to choose between going back to the safety of the lives they have always known, or risking it all to try and pull off a daring escape.
