Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend (Dan Stevens), is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown where she's reunited with her childhood friend (Jason Sudeikis). When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world. Experience the wildly original film critics are calling, "a great deal of fun" (New York Times).

Critics Consensus: Colossal's singular strangeness can be disorienting, but viewers who hang on may find that its genre-defying execution -- and Anne Hathaway's performance -- is well worth the ride.

Amazing, quirky sci-fi movie has drinking, language.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Colossal is an unusual sci-fi/fantasy/comedy/drama that could almost qualify as surreal. While violence isn't constant, some of it is quite shocking: A woman is beaten up and subjected to psychological violence and threats. There's also fantasy violence -- giant monsters attack, and the military fires on them. A subplot also involves bullying. Language is strong and fairly frequent, with uses of "f--k" and "s--t"; there's also brief sexual innuendo. Characters drink heavily and often, getting very drunk and suffering hangovers and blackouts. Though alcoholism isn't discussed, drinking is part of how the plot is triggered. A character is accused of using cocaine, and some smoking is shown. For the right viewers, this movie will definitely be a memorable experience -- perhaps even a cult favorite in the making. Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis co-star.
