Thoughts on The Second Age of Aquarius

ThoughtsThe Second Age of Aquarius is a fantasy comedy that romance following a woman that manages to create a real life aviator of her favourite rock star who died years ago, which will see her getting a chance to spend time with him, living up to the dreams she once had, while filling a void in her life. This is a story that will offer up a big question about what we would do if we could spend a day with an idol, what would you do and how would you react to everything happening. The weaker side of the story is that we are dealt the idea of a bigger problem Alberta has, but it never feels like the interaction helps her get through this problem, which feels like it could be seen as a bigger picture idea. The performances are strong in the film with the two leads Christina Jacquelyn Calph and Michael Ursu holding their own through the film.

Final Thoughts The Second Age of Aquarius is a fun romantic fantasy giving you a vision of spending time with an idol.
