It probably goes without saying that many of the most interesting science-fiction films to come out in recent years have been low budget indie films. Since they can’t afford big special effects and stars they are instead forced to focus on story and ideas above all else. The latest film to fall into this category is James Ward Byrkit’s Coherence, which premiered at Fantastic Fest last year and will get a release next month courtesy of Oscilloscope Laboratories.
The story revolves around a group of friends at a dinner party who “experience a troubling chain of reality bending events” after a comet passes overhead. While that may seem a little vague, the mention of quantum physics and comparisons to Primer are more than enough to get me interested. Coherence hits select theatres and VOD on June 20th; check out the full trailer and previous teaser trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
