Description

Nacho Vigalondo writes and directs this sci-fi thriller starring Anne Hathaway, Dan Stevens and Jason Sudeikis. After losing both her boyfriend Tim (Stevens) and her job because of her wild and childish behaviour and excessive drinking, Gloria (Hathaway) leaves New York to move back to her hometown where she gets a job in her friend Oscar (Sudeikis)'s bar. As she tries to settle back into a normal life, a gigantic monster attacks Seoul and, despite being on the other side of the world, Gloria discovers she has a strange, psychic connection with the rampaging behemoth. Still none the wiser about the reason for her powers, Gloria lets Oscar and his drinking buddies in on her special secret but finds she's not the only one capable of controlling a giant monster in Seoul...

Synopsis
After breaking up with her boyfriend and returning to her small hometown, a down-on-her-luck woman (Anne Hathaway) is shocked to discover that a Godzilla-like monster rampaging through South Korea is controlled by her movements while she's drunk. However, things get even more complicated when her monster battles a gigantic robot controlled by a childhood friend of hers (Jason Sudeikis). Nacho Vigalondo directed this sci-fi comedy, which received its world premiere at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival.

Movie Critics
Boston Globe
"The filmmaking is low-budget but confident, the performances confident but trickier than they seem. This is ultimately a movie about a woman reclaiming her self-respect, and Hathaway is sharp enough to play it for comedy and pathos, delusional thinking and angry recrimination."
Ty Burr (13 Apr 2017, )
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "The rarest of monster flicks: one in which the humans are the most interesting bit."
Nick De Semlyen (15 May 2017, )
Film Comment
"[P]art giant-monster movie, part romantic comedy, yet 100 percent original, COLOSSAL marks a welcome return to form for Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo. It’s the most satisfying and innovative film he’s made since his 2007 feature debut..."
Film Comment Staff (1 Mar 2017, )
Los Angeles Times
"You could say that COLOSSAL offers a welcome reminder of what a good actress Anne Hathaway can be, except that some of us never forgot in the first place....[A] goofily, fitfully inspired genre experiment..."
Justin Chang (6 Apr 2017, )
New York Times
"COLOSSAL has such an easygoing, offhand vibe, and takes such pleasure in its characters’ foibles, that it camouflages its deep subject, which is rage."
A. O. Scott (6 Apr 2017, )
RogerEbert.com
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Part of the film's unique sense of humor comes from the way it plays against our expectation that Vigalondo is going to make things bigger at some point....The film takes the characters' problems seriously, but it never becomes self-important."
Matt Zoller Seitz (7 Apr 2017, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Anne Hathaway delivers a funny, fierce, fully committed performance that demands to be seen."
Peter Travers (4 Apr 2017, )
The Guardian
3 stars out of 5 -- "A dextrous score by Bear McCreary helps negotiate the alarming tonal shifts, but in the end it’s Hathaway who holds it all together, even as her on-screen life falls apart."
Mark Kermode (21 May 2017, )
Variety
"Paying homage to classic Japanese tokusatsu cinema, this material is fun..."
Dennis Harvey (21 Sep 2017, )
