We think all of those things combined is what makes ‘Kin’ unique.”
Adding further, Jonathan said, “At its heart, ‘Kin’ is a wish-fulfillment movie. It’s about a young character who finds something otherworldly beyond his wildest imagination, his wildest dreams. But then has to decide how he’s going to use it, and whether his actions are at heart good or something more sinister.”
Kin is here to stimulate your mind in an intellectual way with both its blockbuster elements and the aspect of family that lies at the heart of the film. With an exciting and fresh science fiction story, the makers of Kin will surely take you on a fun trip.
