In this nuanced and comedic portrait of marriage, newlyweds Alex (Lee Tergesen) and Alice (Melanie Lynskey) host a New Year's Eve party for their closest friends at their remote cabin in the mountains. However, when Alice's friend brings along a surprise guest—the very young and beautiful Helena (Gillian Jacobs)—the group's facades begin to crumble.

    "The acting performances are all perfect...It is a brutally realistic depiction of the trials and tribulations of 30-something couples and their friendships."

    "Among its achievements is the kind of comfortable, shaded acting we expect from seasoned professionals and a script (by the director, Joseph Infantolino) that almost scarily captures the cadences of whining white privilege."
    Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
