I honestly didn't think that this movie secretly shot at Disneyland and Disneyworld would end up being released. I thought for sure Disney would shut it down, but Producers Distribution Agency has announced that it will be released on October 11th.
The movie is called Escape For Tomorrow. We saw it at Sundance, and it was a crazy whacked out surreal film. It's a must watch, just because it's something you have to experience. I think I enjoyed the film as a whole, but it got incredibly strange and crazy near the end. Here's the synopsis:
Jim White is an average American family man, mostly content to exist within his humdrum reality. At the tail end of a theme park vacation with his loving wife and two beautiful children, he is awakened by an unsettling phone call from his boss, who tells him that he has lost his job. Unwilling to disturb their sabbatical, Jim holds off on breaking the news to his family so they can enjoy their last day at the idyllic and beloved tourist destination. In desperate need of a distraction, he finds one amidst the long lines at the park—two attractive and fun-loving teenage girls. In his fractured state, Jim falls obsessively in love, making any excuse he can to follow them everywhere. Along the way, his paranoid psyche spirals even further downward, and the fine line between fantasy and reality becomes blurred.
This is what Eli had to say about the film in his review:
I absolutely loved the satirical humor in the first 2/3 of the movie. There were so many well-written scenes that really feel authentic to what a "not-so-magical" day at the "Happiest Place on Earth" is like. The film's final act is what will polarize audiences. You'll either love or hate the bizarre turn this takes. Even though this "line between fantasy and reality" is set up throughout the movie, it turns into something I personally found hard to enjoy. Not only could I not make heads or tails of the ending, it just stopped being funny and resorted to gross-out humor.
