Film Series: Colossal

2017. Canada/Spain. Dir: Nacho Vigalondo. With Anne Hathaway. 110 min.

After her boyfriend evicts her over her alcoholism, Hathaway returns to her childhood home and falls back into damaging patterns with an old friend. Concurrently – perhaps relatedly? – a giant monster appears to be destroying Seoul, South Korea. Hathaway must consider whether her bad behavior is affecting more than herself in this Kaufman-esque kaiju fable about toxic relationships.
