Download The Discovery full movie and it is 2017 Hollywood Romance film directed by Charlie McDowell. The Discovery has a most arresting opening, one in which an eminent scientist announces the existence ofa new plane of existence or, more traditionally put, an afterlife. Choosing to believe his conviction, far too many people begin committing suicide to hasten their voyage to this other realm. Now what should the world do?

Unfortunately, after its fine start, this brainy slice of provocative speculative fiction slowly but surely loosens its grip on audience involvement rather than increases it. A fine cast and a promotable premise that brings metaphysics to the masses will help Netflix launch this on big and small screens beginning March 31, but a growing number of perplexities will afflict viewers through the second half, resulting in a decidedly mixed report card. McDowell’s first feature, The One I Love, which debuted at Sundance in 2014 and was written by the director’s present collaborator Justin Lader, had something of the same problem in being an impressively presented piece, recognizably located in the real world and populated by real people, but veering off into territory not so easy to digest and accept. It wasn’t surprising that, after a strong Sundance reception, the film never made a dent or a cent.

The Discovery will fare better, if only because its central premise crosses over into terrain that is traditionally the province of religion but is here claimed by the celebrated physicist Dr. Thomas Harbor (Robert Redford). Harbor’s absolute conviction that there is some kind of life after death is undercut by suicides that run into the millions, spurring Harbor to push his research further using himself as the subject. Redford’s work in the opening scene, in which he addresses his breakthrough and its consequences, is one of the strongest things he’s ever done onscreen. Harbor has surrounded himself with acolytes, the primary one being his other son Toby, a long-haired hippie dude who helps his father prepare for his own brain trip, which he hopes might take him to the other side and back. The rest of the student body, if such it is, consist of plant, undemonstrative cultists who are not there to question any of what goes on at the compound, first and foremost their own unrewarded servitude.
