The Overnight

Rated R 80 min. 2015

Right from the jump, this movie lays out how odd things can get in the bedroom for married couples with a scene involving Alex (Parks and Recreation straight man Adam Scott) and Emily (Orange is the New Black star Taylor Schilling) getting in a quick one before they start the day. Sexual awkwardness among people bonded in holy matrimony is the running theme of this recent Sundance fave, written and directed by Patrick Brice (Creep). New to the L.A. area, Alex and Emily set up a playdate with fellow parent and ultra-hipster Kurt (Jason Schwartzman, of course). At his tiny abode, they're greeted at the door by Charlotte (Judith Godrèche), Kurt's foxy French wife, and are immediately won over by the sophisticated, bohemian surroundings. As the night goes on, The Overnight becomes a will-they-or-won't-they bedroom farce where two couples dance around how far they're willing to go. It's an occasionally over-the-top but ultimately endearing look at how, for married couples, staying sexually attractive to each other can be a desperate, ongoing struggle.
