Of course it's a parable. Something about topsy-turvy priorities favoring the rich, two people from "different worlds," got it. Because love actually isn't stronger than gravity. Love only makes you think your insides are being crushed.

The visuals, however, are extremely pretty, and for once, I wish something were in Imax that isn't. Trailer after the jump.
