Can you fall in love just by looking into someone’s eyes?
That’s the question Michael Pitt struggles with in I Origins, as a PhD student trying to reconnect with a former love in a very unusual way. Pitt plays Ian, a science guy who had a passionate yet short love affair with Sofi, and now seven years later, tries to track her down after a scientific discovery changes everything. The film is directed by Mike Cahill (Another Earth), and in addition to Pitt, stars Brit Marling, Astrid Bergés-Frisbey and Archie Panjabi. Watch the trailer below:
