This is a movie I have been waiting awhile to talk about, mainly because it didn’t get a release in theaters other than the festival circuit. It kind of sucks talking about a movie that a lot of people won’t be able to see unless they get the VOD treatment or some form of streaming. Natural Selection was a movie I was back in November 2011 at a local film festival in Kansas City. I have to admit, even rewatching it makes me realize how much I loved this movie and the subject matter presented. A fantastic flick with a knockout performance from Rachel Harris, Natural Selection wowed me with a deep, character drama with some dark hints of humor.
So it was a relief to track this down on dvd and give it another watch. With an amazing performance from the two leads, Harris being the standout of the pack. The movie certainly is indie at heart, with a strong character driven script that propels the interesting story and filled with moments of earnest, heartfelt discussions about the issue at heart.
