In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.
Amidst a wild flat meadow encircled by an Edenic lush forest, a couple have cocooned themselves in a secluded mansion that was not so long ago burned to the ground, devotedly restored by the supportive wife. Within this safe environment, the once famous middle-aged poet husband is desirous of creating his magnum opus; however, he seems unable to break out of the persistent creative rut that haunts him. Then, unexpectedly, a knock at the door, the sudden arrival of a cryptic late-night visitor and his intrusive wife will stimulate the writer's stagnant imagination. Little by little, much to the perplexed wife's surprise, the more chaos he lets in their haven, the better for his punctured male ego. In the end, will this incremental mess blemish, irreparably, the couple's inviolable sanctuary?Written by

After one of the sons is murdered, the Mother fails to call 911. All she does is clean up the crime scene and dispose of the evidence, making her complicit in the crime, something her character does not demonstrate in any other sense throughout the movie. Although the household is descending into bedlam, and her lack of control became increasingly uncomfortable for the viewer, the fact she did not protest the murder felt ill placed within the broader context of the film.

I don't have the strength to write everything that is bad about this movie. What's worse than the movie itself, and what made me open an account just so I can take the time to type this, is anybody who gives this movie more than one star...particularly those inferring that somehow you're not intellectual if you didn't like it. If you're the type of person who likes to look at a drawing that a 2 year created, perhaps consisting only of a poorly drawn circle, and somehow finds some hidden, deep meanings from that, then by all means, this movie is for you. Make it a religious circle to really make it interesting. Of the 1% of the people who feel this movie isn't the worst ever created, I figure ½ of them are trying to make it appear that they're smarter than everybody else, ¼ of them are internet trolls just trying to stir things up, 1/8 are family and friends of the director and actors, 1/16 are using some serious opioids and the last 1/16th are religious fanatics. I really hope that adds up to 100% because, well, I guess I'm just not that smart. Can one of you 10 star people please check my arithmetic?
