Watch Elephants primarily for its fantastic performances by its three leads Luca Malacrino, Allison Blaize, and Lauren J. Kelly.
It’s an emotionally charged tribute to those special relationships when we’re young. I am looking forward to seeing what The Chameleon Effect has in store in the future. They’re definitely a team to watch.
Kudos to filmmaker Alexander Hanno for offering us a movie about what happens when toxic love takes over a person’s life. It’s not a pretty sight -- but something that should be dealt with in more films.
The more Hanno peels away at her character over the progression of the narrative, the more we learn... Elephants is a great film about toxic love, and I hope people seek it out.
