Final entry to my Silver-Gem(ini) trilogy, this one covers the themes of self-discovery, depression, and redemption.
PLOT: Sean Davis is a young man suffering from clinical depression as a teen due to the mysterious and unfortunate deaths of his parents. Attempting to reconnect with society, Sean reunites with old friends at a cafe for the Christmas season, even taking a romantic interest in his former rival. Things take a turn for him when a sudden alien invasion occurs at night and Sean's friends are abducted. Leaving himself alone, Sean at first relents when he realizes the gravity of the situation, and makes the most difficult decision to go on a suicide mission to save his friends. Along the way, Sean begins to encounter an alien warrior who is against the eradication of mankind and shocking truths that compel him to regain his own humanity and save the world.
Inspirations: The Grey, Take Shelter, Super 8, and Skyline.
MPAA: Rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and mayhem, brief strong language, and thematic material.
Note: This entry won't have over the top violence nor over the top drama, rather a story that has action based on the characters' decisions and ambiguity on whether or not the invasion was real or just a way of the protagonist coping with his sadness.
Jane Summers - Sean's love interest; a beautiful girl with a sense of humor and somewhat bad girl persona.
Europa Marsden - Alien princess turned rebellious warrior who believes humanity deserves another chance.
King Finnick - Europa's father and dictatorial king planning to wipe out the human race for solar energy and water.
Raymond Harlan - Sean's best friend and step-brother after his family's disappearance.
George and Michelle Davis - Sean's parents who were government officials sent on a mission to discover the mothershio.
Nathan Williams - Wisecracking friend of the group and an alien movie fanatic.
(On a more personal note, I leave it up to anybody who votes on this entry to share your thoughts on what happens in the end, based on ambiguity. I won't be able to create more entries until Labor Day is over. Whatever ideas you guys have suggested, comment again and I will get to them.)
