The most impressive feat in “Frequencies” is its exceptional union of science and romance, but that only makes it more noticeable when the balance is off, even if just the slightest bit.
“Frequencies” takes place in a world where a person’s frequency determines their luck, relationships, potential and everything in between. Shortly after a grade school test confirms that Zak is low frequency and Marie is high frequency, the two begin experimenting with their tendency to literally repel each other regardless of how they truly feel about one another. Years later, Zak (Daniel Fraser) works tirelessly to overcome his fate and challenge the scientific fact that he and Marie just aren’t destined to be together.
“Frequencies” is a smart and ambitious movie, but sometimes, too much for its own good. This idea of everyone having a definitive frequency that dictates his or her place in the world is deeply fascinating. The moment the movie explains this rating system and what it means for an individual’s quality of life, you instantly wonder where you might fall on that scale, making the scenario highly engaging right at the start.
