Struggling with a marriage on the brink of falling apart, a couple escapes for a weekend in pursuit of their better selves, only to discover an unusual dilemma that awaits them. (IMDb)
With its unexpected mix of suspenseful thriller and romantic dramedy, the film gives both genres a refreshing face-lift: the former with authentic acting, natural dialogue, and heightened character focus; the latter with a bizzare sci-fi-ish twist that puts interpersonal tension within an unsettling new framework. There are a couple of possible plot holes, and the final act’s uncovering leaves something to be desired, but the open-ended mystery of it all has does have its charm too.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
