Writer-director Charlie McDowell returns to Sundance this year with a thriller about a scientist (played by Robert Redford) who uncovers scientific proof that there is indeed an afterlife. His son is portrayed by Jason Segel, who's not too sure about his father's 'discovery', and Rooney Mara plays a mystery woman who has her own reasons for wanting to find out more about the afterlife.

An intriguing setup in search of a compelling narrative...

The Discovery poses a fascinating existential question to its audience, but doesn't quite manage to fill in a plot around it.

Even with Mara and Segel in the lead, The Discovery is unable to make a somewhat interesting story; that initial compelling idea is wasted in this dull and stale sci-fi film.

The movie ... is a dull, nonsensical, sterile mess that left me with a headache and a tinge of annoyance from having wasted my time.

A story that could have had more nerve and a more elaborate and imaginative staging, going beyond the grayish tones that dominate the photography of Sturla Brandth Grøvlen. [Full review in Spanish]

Suicide shown, discussed throughout bleak sci-fi drama.

The entire thing feels like it's happening underwater, sound distorted, movements impeded. A lot happens, but without any urgency inspiring it.

More interested in metaphysical ponderings and so-called 'human truths' than in telling a convincing story.

McDowell, who co-wrote the script with Justin Lader, had an intriguing what-if idea. But it feels like they never figured out what to do with it.
