    The nauseating uptempo music is a way of saying out loud this is a feel good family movie. Still, I'm intrigued, and a fan of Toni Colette.

    I have grown to love Toni Collette with every movie she makes. She almost messed it up with F8 of the furious and that Melissa McCarthy movie, but this is good.

    I'm living this! My so called illegitimate kid genetically comes from a Psych Ward Nut Case, she is the most caring genius! Gifted and talented, reading since she was 3. My 2 kids with my partner with a strong family background... They are on the slower end, needs speech therapy, and will probably go to T1 and held back in her school career! I guess it's a mixed back whatever DNA and nurturing going on!!!!

      Seems to be the story of three adopted kids. Their new parents adopt them and attempt to raise them as the opposite to their birth parents. For example, one kid had scientist birth-parents, and tried to raise him as an artist. Another had stupid parents, tried to raise her as a smart person, the other had angry parents, tried to raise him as a peacemaker. They basically try to pull them away from growing up like their parents. It them seems that this doesn't work and the parents must take into mind that a child will grow to be who they are, and not what someone makes them. I haven't seen the movie but thats what I got from the trailer.

    Is it based on real events? Because if it is then it's fucked up.

    • Madalena Barata

      What I meant was that, out of everything they could've done, the 'logic' behind it wasn't 'fucked up'. They actually wanted these kids to have a better live outside of what would be expected of them. In my previous comment I mentioned David Reimer, that right there is a fucked up social experiment done without the knowledge or consent of the child and it destroyed his whole life.
      Again, the biological parents had to have given the couple their parental rights (as the children were adopted, minus one) and they genuinely loved them. You see in the trailer the couple is frustrated and upset when the scientist that 'monitor' the experiment want to take the children away when they don't show signs of being extraordinary.

      Madalena Barata you do know that if something is worse it doesn't mean something isn't bad? I feel like performing a social experiment on a kid, that didn't give consent to it (and they could not) is fucked up...

    • Madalena Barata
      Madalena Barata Year ago +19

      There have been worse social experiments/scientific experiments performed on children (unwillingly or even unknowingly) for this to be considered 'fucked up'. What's the worst thing they could've possibly done to those children? For them to have the babies families had to have given consent, the children were raised in an actual home not an institution, they were not socially isolated from their peers (you see scenes in which they are at school) and the parents that raised them truly saw them as their own.
      Okay, yes, it's horrible they are looking to 'separate' the children from their 'roots' but c'mon, they're raising a girl to be smart, a boy to think outside of the box and be more artistic than them (the birth parents!) and another to control anger through pacifism.
      Have you heard about the Monster Study? Heard about David Reimer? Josef Mengele? Or even those sixtuplets who were raised like a freaking sideshow nearly their whole lives? Living with nurses and doctors inside a private institute never seeing the outside world until their parents got custody back?
      Those were truly fucked up experiments. If this film was based on real events no one should blink at it and be like, 'that's child abuse!' Nowadays you see parents raise their kids in front of cameras all the time, youtubers, bloggers, etc. You're about to see an entire generation of kids who have been watched their whole lives through cellphones and computers by people who judged, commented and 'advised' the parents on what they were doing/should be doing.
      This is literally something that's already happening upped to eleven. Parents raise their kids with the preconceived notion that they can 'shape' who they become in the future, these ones tried to 'change' genes (like that mattered overly much) into the complete opposite of what was expected of them, big deal...

      You are amazing. I didn't even realise the Nature vs Nurture thing. That's literally one of my obsessions, I need to know which one shapes a person.

    • kstreet

      The kids in this are figuratively considered "marked" from "birth" with clear expectations for how the child will develop based on their genetics and family history (nature). But the parents want to raise (nurture) kids as an experiment to see if they can defy those expectations. The movie is clearly about how they learn you can't control everything, so there's no way to raise a child with guaranteed results. A life cannot be determined solely by nature or nurture-it's a mixture.

      Not really, it's a play on words. You can't expect everyone to get it immediately. There's no reason to be rude to someone just because they didn't understood something.
