Safety Not Guaranteed

Darius is a young intern at a Seattle-based magazine and jumps at the chance to investigate the author of a classified ad seeking someone to travel back in time with. Along with Jeff, the staff writer, and Arnau, a fellow intern, the three go on a road trip to a coastal town. While Jeff just wants to chase after his high school crush and Arnau wants some kind of life experience, Darius spends her time with Kenneth, a man who believes that he has built a time machine. The closer they become and the more they understand about each other, the less clear it becomes if Kenneth is just crazy or if he actually is going to successfully travel back in time.
Kenneth: To go it alone or to go with a partner. When you choose a partner you have to have compromises and sacrifices, but it’s a price you pay. Do i want to follow my every whim and desire as I make my way through time and space, absolutely. But at the end of the day do I need someone when I’m doubting myself and I’m insecure and my heart’s failing me? Do I need someone who, when the heat gets hot, has my back?
Darius: So, do you?
Kenneth: I do

I love Jake Johnson's Jeff in this movie. He plays her boss and they go in search of a story for their magazine. Its a bit of an insane road trip with a few car chases and impersonation. What ever it takes to get the story..they say. And Jeff goes in search of an old girlfriend, too.

A girl’s beauty it’s in the eyes and that doesn’t go away with the age”-Jeff

 “There’s no sense in nonsense, especially when the heat’s hot.”-Darius

This is one of my favorite movies this past year. I'm not sure I can pin-point what it is exactly. Its more than a movie about time travel. Its quirky and has so many great quotes in this film. I love the characters and of course what they do and say. There is no need for special effects in this film. If you are Mark Duplass fan, you are sure to see this film!
