Iris invites her friend Jack to stay at her family's island getaway after the death of his brother. At their remote cabin, Jack's drunken encounter with Hannah, Iris' sister, kicks off a revealing stretch of days.
Dispatched from his basement room on an errand for his widowed mother, slacker Jeff might discover his destiny (finally) when he spends the day with his unhappily married brother as he tracks his possibly adulterous wife.
A video artist looking for work drives to a remote house in the forest to meet a man claiming to be a serial killer. But after agreeing to spend the day with him, she soon realizes that she made a deadly mistake.
Late in the movie, when Ethan is browsing files on the computer there is one listed as "Kobe and Vanessa" this is an ode to NBA Superstar Kobe Bryant and his wife, Vanessa Bryant. See more »
While Ethan is on the phone, there are several shots showing the door open in the background (in an adjacent room). In the penultimate shot, the door is almost fully closed - then open again in the last shot. See more »
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.

I'm a huge fan of the Duplasse brothers and of Elizabeth Moss and I saw this film at the Montclair (NJ) Film Festival and enjoyed it very much. The description doesn't do it justice BUT to provide a more in-depth description would have to include spoilers and this is a film that you DON'T want to have spoiled for you. Both Moss and Duplasse are charming in this clever dramedy with real meaning for those of us for whom a long- term marriage carries with it both discomfort and comfort. Ted Danson plays a marriage counselor who sends this couple off for a weekend that he guarantees will help repair their badly broken connection. But they are in for a wealth of surprises over the weekend. Lots of humorous bits but it is basically a serious look at long-term relationships and how people have to come to terms with what they truly want.
