2018-11-19T23:54:57+00:00

Is life one big “Choose Your Own Adventure” game or are all the twists and turns we experience predetermined? Nick Payne’s “Constellations” doesn’t answer the question, but it does offer evidence to back both suggestions. In “Constellations,” multiple universes allow quantum physicist Marianne (Chelsea DuVall) and beekeeper Roland (Max Elinsky) a chance to relive pivotal

Lovers and madmen have such seething brains, such shaping fantasies, that apprehend more than cool reason ever comprehends," says Theseus in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. The madman, he claims, "sees more devils than vast hell can hold," whereas the lover sees beauty where none is evident. And what about when lovers also happen to be madmen?
