Daily Grail readers will likely be interested in this upcoming film, given its themes of science and spirituality, and the interaction between them. I Origins, written and directed by Mike Cahill (Another Earth)…

…tells the story of Dr. Ian Gray (Michael Pitt), a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the eye. He finds his work permeating his life after a brief encounter with an exotic young woman (Astrid Bergès-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.

For more information, see this review from the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (some spoilers). And if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know why I sat up and paid attention when I came across the trailer earlier today…

I Origins will be in theatres from July 18, 2014.
