While stuck at a wedding in Palm Springs, Nyles (Andy Samberg) meets Sarah (Cristin Milioti), the maid of honor and family black sheep. After he rescues her from a disastrous toast, Sarah becomes drawn to Nyles and his offbeat nihilism. But when their impromptu tryst is thwarted by a surreal interruption, Sarah must join Nyles in embracing the idea that nothing really matters, and they begin wreaking spirited havoc on the wedding celebration.
Nyles is drinking "Akupara" beer. In Sanskrit, Akupara means "unlimited, unbounded" and in Hinduism, it's the name of a tortoise described as "one who is without death." "If you look close on that label, there's a graphic that kind of explains the mythology of the world and the earthquake," Director Max Barbakow said, recommending a google of Akupara that will take you down a "nice little wormhole, that explains some of the metaphysics behind the movie." He credits production designer Jason Kisvarday with creating the look of the beer. See more »
