Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: If you like your science-fiction lo-fi, and your coming of age parables with a handy technological metaphor at their core, Colin Trevorrow's Safety Not Guaranteed is the movie you've been waiting for.
Fresh: Few films so gloriously live up to their potential.
Fresh: An endearingly oddball indie sci-fi.
Fresh: Plaza and Duplass are enormously watchable, and there's a sweet sadness in the movie's focus on lost dreams and missed chances, and the truism that we all long for a time machine every once in a while.
A wonderful story of four rather lost souls trying to find a way to connect with themselves and the world around them. Very well acted and uniquely told. You will get involved with these characters and despite them being just a little crazy, you want them to win. Well worth watching if you enjoy something original.
Movie of the year
I swear the acting is impeccable and the story is heart wrenching.
Storytelling at its best...
Something most movies lack these days. You have no idea where this simple story will take you till the end, and the journey is sweet, fun and very fulfilling. Not only that, the acting is pitch perfect, especially by Aubrey Plaza. The 'special effect' in the movie is miniscule compared to what the Avengers bombards you with... but this one made my heart soar. Loved the movie, and highly recommend it.
