Did You Know?


The film was first written about a male and female couple with Sergio being a man, but Miguel Arteta and Alia Shawkat had a hard time casting the role. Once Laia Costa auditioned for the film, they felt that she had just the right grasp on the character, and changed the story to two females. See more »

Not an easy movie to like
7 July 2018 | by richard-fieldhouseSee all my reviews

Two girls meet at a bar. One is an actor who worries about her motivation (played by Alia Shawkat, who also shares the writing credits). The other was the evening's singer at the bar (played by rising star Laia Costa). The following day they agree to try and spend a complete 24 hours in each other's company to explore their relationship.

They start out liking each other but as we learn more about them it's not so clear whether we really like them quite so much or whether they'll stay together. The characters are realistic and well acted but they have some strange attitudes and an interest in what might be described as toilet humour if it was even remotely funny - but it wasn't. Each to their own, I suppose.

Not the best accompaniment to a TV dinner. 5/10.
