You can’t always get what you want
Greetings again from the darkness. Starting out with a typical marriage counseling session, director Charlie McDowell and writer Justin Lader lull us into a movie-going comfort zone based on our experience with such Hollywood fluff as Hope Springs and Couples Retreat. All that should be said at this point is … not so fast!
A crumbling marriage and the subsequent lack of success with communication, leads therapist (Ted Danson) to recommend a weekend alone at a private country estate. The twists and turns that await Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss), take marriage counseling to an entirely new spectrum. Sophie wants to reignite that early relationship spark and Ethan just wants things back to normal.
The setting does justice to the legend of beautiful California real estate, but things aren’t all they seem as Ethan and Sophie bounce back and forth between the main house and guest house. It’s in these moments where the big relationship questions are addressed … and the script is smart, funny, creative and dark. It’s not likely anyone can watch this without having some inner dialogue, and probably even some real discussion afterwards.
Mark Duplass (“The League”, Safety Not Guaranteed) and Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men”) not only carry the film, but also take on significant responsibility with wide-ranging personality traits and subtle physical changes. Duplass is exceptional and easy for most guys to relate to in how he handles the challenges. While I’ve never been a big fan of Ms. Moss, her performance here is quite impressive. Whether “together” or “apart”, they complement each other nicely.
The closest comparison I have for this one is Ruby Sparks (2012), but this one will have you questioning what makes a relationship work and what should we really expect in our partner. The idea of recapturing the initial spark is absurd, but that doesn’t lessen the need for realistic expectations. For the first feature from director Charlie McDowell (son of Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen) and writer Justin Lader, the unique and creative approach to such a complex topic make these two people to keep an eye on.
Falling in and out of love can often be the same thing.
It’s not often that I give a movie a 10/10, but this is an incredible exception. I stumbled upon this film a few weeks ago while researching Duplass, as I have been a huge fan of his show “The League”, since it’s first season and enjoy supporting the it’s actors in the other works. I had no knowledge of the premise of this film going in other than the fact that it was a dramatic movie with a sci-fi twist. I’ve read a few reviews that state how dull the introduction and plot development is, but without giving away any spoilers, getting into the last quarter of the film the first 2/3 become so extremely vital, that the action becomes thrilling, I found myself on several occasions with an elevated pulse, and cheering for Duplass’s character who seems to be trapped literally and figuratively. Overall this films is tremendous and to the right viewer, will be refreshed by the creative blend of a stock drama and a sci-fi thriller.
