What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Replicas is a sci-fi thriller about a neuroscientist who defies the laws of man and nature to bring his family back to life. After a car crash kills his entire family, Will Foster (Keanu Reeves) uses his own experimental technology to download their consciousness and upload it to human clones. With the help of another scientist (Thomas Middleditch), Foster goes up against the government-controlled lab where he works, the police, and the rules of science, only to be faced with a horrible choice: He can only save three of his four dead family members. Expect heavy themes, disturbing images, violence, sexual references, and some nudity in this thriller, which looks best for mature teens.
