When you want a thought provoking movie experience, watch the Pixelia movie.
The Indian film is truly one of a kind, so it keeps your attention from start to finish.
It was made in Kerala, India, so the story and characters are viewed through a cultural lens that is unique to this area.
Some of the cultural aspects were familiar to me, but much of it was a whole new experience.
There is symbolism woven in throughout, so you’ll pick up new things each time you watch the movie.
Pixela is not rated, but is not recommended for children. The subject matter is adult, and kids probably wouldn’t be interested, anyways.
The film is uniquely interesting, so is a good choice for adults who like to discuss the films they watch.
You will still be thinking about it, long after the credits have run.
