In a secluded house on Adirondack Lake, a bunch of out-of-town guests who want to be inspired by their shoot entertain. The group quickly becomes entangled in a calculated game of passion, manipulation and jealousy.
Without realizing the complexity of their current lives. Blurring the lines between autobiography and exploration in the immediate lives of filmmakers in search of art.
Allison (Aubrey Plaza) is sitting on the pier in a red swimsuit and looks like a mirror overlooking the lake. He is a writer / director and comes to a house in the woods to work on his next screenplay. The house is owned by Gabe (Christopher Abbott) and Blair (Sarah Gadon). A married couple who have moved from the city and saw their home as an artist’s paradise.
He didn’t go like that on Allison’s first night, even though Blair is pregnant. They all get drunk and Gabe and Blair argue for Allison and end up arguing over Allison.
This film works on several levels. The first part takes place like a really cute relationship comedy. Allison smiles on a long dark and drunken night as she obsessively flirts with Abbott’s Gift and Gadon’s Blair.
Allison visits an inspiring seaside town and knows her dysfunction: hate? – and defends them by incorporating biographical information into conversations that may or may not be true: her mother’s sudden death, her goodbye to the deed, her hatred of compliments, her inability to cook.
Things got to a tipping point when a thread told us we had hit Episode II. Suddenly, the same actress starred in a movie similar to Gabe’s (but also very different). Directed by Gabe, where he turns out to play a brutal psychological game to maximize the performance of his wife the unstable star Allison. Now Blair is a passer, both on film and on set. And the crew does their best to make the final day production even more chaotic.
The trio’s conflict quickly escalates, but when the first peak is reached, the story suddenly starts all over again. The second half of the film undergoes a complete overhaul with the same actors, but the relationships between their characters are warped and distorted.
Now, where Gabe is the director, the protagonist is Allison. In this version of the series, he and Gabe are a married couple and Blair is the main smuggler who flirts with the director.
This unclassifiable drama is a disturbing psychosexual thriller. An unstructured part of today’s culture, a very sharp part of the independent film world. It’s hard to explain. But start here: Plaza stars as a filmmaker who taken to a remote mountain cabin on weekends and surrounded by his owner.
The flirty Gabe (Christopher Abbott) and his pregnant partner Blair (Sarah Gadon). By the end of the first half it’s all about and Levine’s movie has turned into a movie about making movies that do some pretty crazy and loving damage to the main character.
