Eva is a woman desperate to get in front of her fate. One of a growing number of human mutants who lack the ability to perceive time, she is aware of the disaster that's set to befall her and her lover, Marcus. Knowing she has seen too much, she believes (or hopes) that she can also alter her destiny. It's a feeling most of us have experienced, even without the benefit of Eva's heightened self-awareness.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film does a pretty good job of conveying the bleakness and pointlessness Eva and her fellow mutants feel, but it's as if Ms. Trachinger were reluctant to take the premise any deeper..."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"the final act of Reversion is so spelled out and unimpressively dour that it makes you almost forget the edge Mia Trachinger brought to the opening sequences."
‑ Glenn Heath Jr., Slant Magazine
"If the whole goal of this film is to alienate its audience, then another few stars can be added to its review rating because it does that very well."
‑ Eric Campos, Film Threat
"A conceptual stunt without much substance beneath its initially enticing exterior..."
‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice
"Reversion is a bold and edgy film that explores some interesting philosophical and political ideas that are particularly relevant in a time when our leaders seem to make most of their decisions without regard to past, present or future."
‑ Kim Voynar, Cinematical
"Mia Trachinger's thought-provoking lo-fi science fiction movie/rumination on mortality, memory and destiny, does what any low-budget independent film ought to do, which is to assure the viewer that its maker is capable of great things."
‑ Ray Greene, Boxoffice Magazine
"Pic lacks visual finesse and stylistic aplomb."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"Reversion is a prime example of collaboration in independent film."
‑ Rory L. Aronsky, Film Threat
