Safety Not Guaranteed

4

Time travel in a relatable way...

More than a year after it opened in UK cinemas, this low-key charmer comes weighted with extra levels of expectation now that director Colin Trevorrow has been hired for Jurassic World.

A genre piece that puts the focus firmly on character, it bodes well for his move to bigger things.

Roped in by jaded journo Jeff to investigate an ad seeking a time-travel companion, intern Darius (Aubrey Plaza) goes undercover to get the scoop on Mark Duplass’ oddball Kenneth.

Forget wormholes, butterfly effects and flashy set-pieces, and just enjoy the deft blend of sharp laughs and sincere poignancy.
