So, we met at a party, and... it was magic. Within a half-hour we were driving up into this really nice neighborhood, and we were running down the stairs of some strangers back yard, and then we were swimming, and we were in love. What we didn't count on was that even though the lights were off, the owner of the home was there. And he came out screaming at us, and it was the greatest night of my life.

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.
