Out Now On-Demand

Surreal romantic-comedy starring Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed). The plot – described by Variety as "a challenge to discuss without spoiling a good deal of the fun" – involves the couple being sent on a dizzying weekend getaway, in an attempt to repair the cracks in their relationship. Co-stars Ted Danson as the couple's therapist.

"Ethan and Sophie are a married couple on the brink of separation. At the urging of their therapist, they escape to a beautiful vacation house for a weekend getaway in an attempt to salvage what’s left of their relationship. What starts off as a relaxing and tranquil retreat soon spirals into a bizarre experience that forces the couple to reflect upon the complexities of their troubled partnership. Over the course of a few days, Ethan and Sophie work diligently to rediscover their better selves and embrace the unexpected as everything they once thought was real becomes more and more surreal."

Disarmingly clever — too clever to spoil. But it's also repetitive and a bit too Spike Jonze lite.
