Every so often... a small-scale, thoughtful movie like “Advantageous” comes along and summons up a speculative new world with brains, some frugal sleight of hand and cool confidence...
Limited Run at the Cinema Village, June 26 - July 2! Click here for showtimes and tix! See the trailer and sample the brilliant soundtrack by award-winning composer Timo Chen!
Written by Jennifer Phang and Jacqueline Kim
Directed by Jennifer Phang
Advantageous dissects the Mother/Daughter bond and how a dystopian society can take its toll on it, parallels issues that women face today. It isn't just about how this film was done; it's about why it was done. What sacrifices are we willing to make for our loved ones? How can such a dystopian society painted in Advantageous condone and even succumb to such sacrifices having to be made by women? What are the different faces of love? All against the backdrop of stunning visual and aural effects.
However, Advantageous will not answer them for you. Part of its brilliance is that it stays with you after you exit the theatre or finishes streaming (through Netflix and iTunes).
Advantageous keeps you so enthralled that you will pick up from where it leaves off to contemplate the characters' journeys, conjecture them, and the film's timely themes of Sacrifice, Fairness, Self-Worth, and Love.
Please rate and review after see it, and spread the word!!
Thanks, love, and gratitude from all of us at Advantageous!

I had the privilege of being a part of this great film. Special Jury Prize at #Sundance, major successful West Coast screenings, and generating great buzz. So proud of #Advantageous, and to have worked with such a great director as Jennifer Phang @Phangvantageous and all of the great cast and crew at #TeamAdvantageous!
