BREAK DOWN
26 February 2020 | by js-66130See all my reviews

Bit of a missed opportunity this.

A seemingly content couple faces their first real test as they face their impending thirties, and spoiler, things don't go well. "Space and Time" nails the conundrum of companion comfort versus personal growth, but delivers the plot in such a true to life mundane manner so as to turn this into a bit of a ho-hum tale.

Siobhan and Sean seem like a good match. They have successful careers, have their creature comforts, click on typical couple levels usually fostered in long term relationships, but clearly the spark of spontaneous fresh love has left the station. Not only are they at "the kids" question crossroad (never broached), but Siobhan decides to strike out on a drastic career move that could shake their rusty routine. A perfect set up for an emotionally explosive relationship dynamic one would think.

Yet the ensuing domino effect falls slowly and silently. Where's the damn drama?As the couple tries to move on, the possibility of reconciliation looms as the only carrot on this flick stick. That's a shame, cuz there's just not enough here to root for. Siobhan is super smart, ambitious, and loathe to settle. Sean means well, but is oblivious to the approaching storm, and loathe to change. When push comes to shove, the fireworks are but a couple of damp sparklers.

The film is almost saved as the characters find self-realization through the process, but even that comes with a tepid conclusion. A totally relatable story that will leave many heads nodding in sympathy, but wanting a bit more from their movie going experience.
