Volition is a layered look at a clairvoyant’s vision of their death. The gifted individual in question is James (Adrian Glynn McMorran), a man who spends his time using his unique skill set to win bets and solve crimes. The latter leads to a bleak and personal vision depicting a sequence of events that culminates in James’s untimely death. He and Angela (Magda Apanowicz), a woman he’s just met and developed feelings for, try to change his future. A time-bending cerebral science-fiction movie that calls to mind the likes of Twelve Monkeys, Minority Report, and Next, Volition holds its own partly because it provides a considered and unforeseen reveal, the buildup to which will keep viewers guessing. These choices, the work of director Tony Dean Smith and his cowriter and brother Ryan Smith, paired with performances that feel tangible, make for a fascinating and moving take on fate.
