Dr. Ian Gray (Michael Pitt), a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the eye, finds his work permeating his life after a brief encounter with an exotic young woman (Astrid Bergèès-Frisbey) who slips away from him. As his research continues years later with his lab partner Karen (Brit Marling), they make a stunning scientific discovery that has far reaching implications and complicates both his scientific and spiritual beliefs. Traveling half way around the world, he risks everything he has ever known to validate his theory. “I ORIGINS is a fascinating examination of belief, spirituality and otherworldliness through the skeptical lens of science”—The Playlist, “a bracingly venturesome, exploratory work that achieves an exceptional balance between the emotional and intellectual aspects of its unusual story”—Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter.
