I had a chance to see this comedic movie up at The Sundance Film Festival. I thought it was hilarious. The Dude wrote up a great review for the film which you can Read Here. He starts it off by saying:
This is the mother of all squirm in your seat awkward movies... The spontaneity of the creative process was certainly not lost in the final product. The smooth, natural dialogue of the wonderful cast made for a laugh a minute, most notably the chemistry between Mark Duplass and co- star Alycia Delmore. The conversations between this on screen husband and wife are just too real. Its creepy really. Like looking into some….. creepy…… Twilight Zone movie mirror or something.
We also had the pleasure of interviewing the director of the film Lynn Shelton and actress Alycia Delmore which you can Watch Here. They give some insight on what it was like making the movie and talk about some great experiences.
When Andrew unexpectedly shows up on Ben's doorstep late one night, the two old college friends immediately fall into their old dynamic of heterosexual one-upmanship. To save Ben from domestication, Andrew invites Ben to a party at a sex-positive commune. Everyone there plans on making erotic art films for the local amateur porn festival and Andrew wants in. They run out of booze and ideas, save for one: Andrew should have sex with Ben, on camera. It's not gay; it's beyond gay. It's not porn; it's an art project. The next day, they find themselves unable to back down from the dare. And there's nothing standing in their way - except Ben's wife Anna, heterosexuality, and certain mechanical questions.
