Film Review of Advantageous

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


What is the relationship between technological progress and personal happiness? How does physical identity, such as age, gender and race, affect one’s relationship with technology? Advantageous (directed by Jennifer Phang, 2015) brings an intelligent and original standpoint to such questions. This independent film is about women of different ages, races, and statuses, and their experiences within familial and professional contexts in a technologically advanced future society. It confronts issues of age, gender and race in more depth than any other science fiction film I know of, and is reminiscent of the thought-provoking fiction of Ursula Le Guin.
