Upside Down definitely has an intriguing premise, but it’s one of those movies where it’s yet to be seen if the plot can live up to the promise of the setup.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Adam (Jim Sturgess) is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he met once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach (each universe is in the sky of the other, able to see once another but not interact)… a girl named Eve (Kirsten Dunst). Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grown-up Eve on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back…’
No UK release date is currently set, but Juan Solanas’ movie arrives in the US in March.
