Centigrade is a new riveting thriller starring a knockout Genesis Rodriguez(Tusk, Yoga Hosers) who has never been better. The plot is a very simple survival done a thousand times before but the performances from the two leads keep it fresh and well worthwhile.
Vincent Piazza(Rocket Science, Jersey Boys) also gives us a performance we should take notes on, he should break out from this film and be put more in starring roles like this, I haven’t seen him in much but he is really admirable in his role here.
The tension is really thick in Centigrade this is the best survival film of its kind since 127 Hours. Genesis Rodriguez should be up for award contention later this year if the pandemic permits it. I still can’t shake her performance from this film that will stick with you long after it’s done…
In 2002, a young American couple, Matthew and Naomi, travel to the arctic mountains of Norway. After pulling over during a snowstorm, they wake up trapped in their SUV, buried underneath layers of snow and Ice. As if the stakes aren’t high enough, Naomi is eight months pregnant in their frozen prison. With few resources, a dwindling food supply, and nothing but time, tension, blame, and personal secrets bubble to the surface. Matthew and Naomi realize they must work together to survive in a crippling battle against the elements, hypothermia, disturbing hallucinations, and plunging temperatures reaching as low as -30C.
