I am in love with this movie. I came across this movie on IMDB.com and wanted to see it ever since I the saw the preview.
Safety Not Guaranteed is about a 20 something year old intern who works for a Seattle magazine. She gets the chance to go on an assignment with a writer and another intern about an ad in a newspaper where someone is looking for somebody to go back in time with. So they decide to go check this out for a story and when they get there, they find some stuff that weren't looking for. The main magazine writer Jeff, played by Jake Johnson, tries to answer the ad but fails pretty hard so Darius has to take charge. Aubrey Plaza (Parks & Recreation) plays Darius and is amazing. She takes the lead on answering the ad and comes to find that the writer of the ad, Kenneth, is serious about going back in time. She starts training with him and every moment spent is another moment where she starts to believe a little more. They come to find that there are people actually following Kenneth and that he might be for real. Kenneth is played by Mark Duplass (The League) and he plays the character of Kenneth perfectly. A character who wins you over the first second that he is on screen. It's hard to explain any more of the movie without giving things away. But what happens, is magic. The acting, the writing, ending......all magic. It's the kind of movie that after you watch it, you wanna watch it the next day.
There is something about this movie that I can't put my finger on. I have different theories on this movie every time I watch it. It came out 2 weeks ago and I have watched it 5 times so far. I absolutely love this movie. It's one of those movies that you wished you wrote yourself. The only problem with this movie is that no one knows about it. It went right under the radar and I consider it a tragedy that people won't know about this movie. Watch this movie. It will leave you wanting more. Yes indeed.
