Directed by: Colin Trevorrow

R. 86 mins

Sweet and sour, the clever script and charming performances make this absurd indie really quite inviting. From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine comes this tale of love, loss and time travel. Darius’ (Aubrey Plaza) first assignment at a Seattle magazine is to join up with a fellow intern and her boss in order to discover the truth behind an odd classified ad in which one man (Mark Duplass) is seeking a partner for his journey back in time. With a slew of oddball characters and a whimsical idea, Safety Not Guaranteed is a nuanced tale with a lot of heart – * * * 1/2
