Would give this a zero, but Theo's acting & presence is awesome

"Based on true events" drew me in. After the movie ended however, my husband & I both felt so awful & angry, that I had to do research to learn the real story, which is bastardized by this mercenary attempt to get a message across about global warming. No offense to the other actors/directors involved; they had guck to work with here, so in an unintended ironic way, the process of the film itself illustrated one of Theo's supposed main themes/"lessons" for us "southerners": make the best of what u got, & work with it, even if it is s*#t on ur shoe.

As someone who is a homesteader in the city, growing my own food, making my own medicines, and living a rich life with minimal materialism, this movie touched my heart. I very much related to Theo and his love of nature and his appreciation for silence since I am an experienced meditation practitioner and teacher. I won't spoil the movie by stating why I balled my eyes out, but I will say that I have stopped hoping that humans develop the courage to look themselves in the mirror and take the steps to heal. Most have become too lazy and emotionally weak to do that kind of inner work or are too egotistical to believe that they are part of the problem.

But for what it's worth, just seeing another person like me on the screen, someone who truly values life, has given me some strength to keep living well and sharing my love with those around me. Sometimes I would rather live in a cave than constantly deal with the indifference that dominates this world and I need a reminder that it doesn't matter if others change. All that matters is that I show up for myself and my loved ones as the best version of myself every day. That is the greatest and most useful thing I can do.

Based on the reviews, the people who won't like this film are the superficial people who ignore the story and its meaning to focus on how the film was made as if this is a film class rather than the Divine message from Mother Earth that it is intended to be.

The reviews for this film were terrible when it was released. It should have gotten more credit. Whiny reviews about poor scripts and actors not fulfilling their potential... seriously? Life doesn't follow a perfect script either, characters (all of us) are flawed and out of place at times, and rarely does anyone accomplish everything they wish to- all of that doesn't mean that life is pointless or that people are failures, and this movie was by no means a flop. Among the many messages woven into this film was the simple one that inspiring people to care matters, even if the end goal isn't what you hope it will be.

Special movie because of Theo -- but I wish it had focused more just on him
Verified purchase
So... i should just give this movie 4*'s... but I want to give this 5 *'s because I think the character of Theo (and the real person Theo) are so special and unusual and I hope there will be more movies with such real feeling characters/actors like that. Really unusual and special. I also liked Dakota's part, although... just putting dirt on her cheeks all the time was sort of silly, I think they could have approached that better. I thought she did a good job, but it could have been approached/presented better. The character was fine for the story, though. I really wish there had been more exploration and information from Theo. Overall, though, it's an easy 4* movie, but I'm giving it 5*'s because it's so unusual and I hope there will be more movies like this.

Unusual and affecting,

CHLOE & THEO bring together climate change and a disparity of cultures.

Theo is an Inuit Eskimo who receives a message from his elders with instructions to take it to NYC and share it. He meets an homeless woman, Chloe, who befriends him and protects him from street thugs. He asks to speak to her “elders” so he can share his message. They hook up with a wealthy philanthropist who takes pity on them and actually believes in their mission and eventually gets them an audience with the United Nations.

Believe it or not, this is based on a true story and this movie was originally intended to be a documentary. For sure, this story is proof of the adage that truth is stranger than fiction🍿

Strange but not a bad movie
Verified purchase
First, the claim "based on true event" got me watch the movie. Is that claim true? who knows? what event?

What I like about the movie is that it is a beautiful storyline about an Inuit who wants to warn the civilized people of a global warming effect. His people knows well that our civilized way of life is not sustainable and a major cause of the global warming.

What I do not like about is the plot. Everything is strange from the beginning. Theo comes to New York City and adapts to the environment, befriends with Chloe, an innocent but intelligent homeless girl. She and her friends believe in Theo. They help Theo getting sponsorship from green companies who will organize an event at United Nations so that Theo can deliver the message. They could have achieved their mission if Theo was not mugged and killed by two homeless criminals. With Theo's death, his message was not delivered to the world leaders.

I gave this movie 3 star's because its unconventional conclusion that we should not believe in world leaders to act. A big revolution starts with self. Walk do not drive, or at least bike. Do not use elevator but use the stair. I gave it three star's instead one because the conclusion is strange but as beautiful as a poem.

A beautiful and most significant revisionary of events portending a very likely future. We are well into an uncompromising anthropomorphic destruction of the entire biosphere, not just the human species, but all life on Earth as we know it. Welcome to a toxic oxygen-free anerobic world of sulfate bacteria. Sludge and stink if anything were alive to smell it. Go back before the Permian Extinction. Mars ain't going to save us or the puppy dogs.

33 years I have been asking, listening, learning and acting on my findings for "What would peace on earth look like, and what would my part be?" Permaculture, regenerative farming community design, these are my guides, as I needed to excavate my life, attention and heart out of a famous Hollywood family household/Hollywood Hills compound, and their fame, millions of dollars and beauty did nothing but kill them as they had no sanity, no real health or foundation of ethics, no respect or love to share, as they were steeped in trauma and self-hatred. This film does NOTHING to assist in actually inviting truth to be lived: we are born for cooperation, loving connection, and living regeneratively, not sustainably, and The UN is led by evil interferences, so no, this film was a waste of time and effort. Sad.
