“The Man from Earth”

When a group of college professors come to say goodbye to a departing colleague, he reveals that he is actually a 40,000-year-old caveman. The conversation that follows ponders points big and small. There are also a few surprises along the way. A quiet movie built around a simple, fascinating concept. I wrote on Twitter: What if a cave man were still alive today? No, the answer isn't he'd do Geico commercials. Smart & thought-provoking. 7.5 (out of 10)
