Darren and Annie have an enviable relationship built on love, trust, and communication. After seven years of marriage, they wouldn’t change their relationship one bit. They still enjoy each other’s company and laugh at each other’s jokes, but, unfortunately, they can’t remember the last time they had sex. When a dinner party conversation leads to an honest discussion about the state of their love life, and a bikini photo shoot leads to crossword puzzles instead of sex, they began to flirt with a way to spice things up. The deal: one night of no-strings-attached sex with a stranger for each of them. Can one night of freedom be just what they need?
With a keen eye and fresh take, Katie Aselton’s directorial debut shines. The Freebie is an insightful, humorous look at love, sustaining relationships, and the awkwardness of monogamy when the haze of lust has faded. —Sundance Film Festival
4 1/2.The mumblecore genre isn't for everyone but if your even remotely into realistic performances/dialogue then SEE IT. The film shows the couple in such an intimate way that I felt like I was in their bedroom. This movie could've easily been a cliche 'sex comedy' with the premise but it isn't. After the big night in the film, the characters don't know the real answer and their body language speaks VOLUMES.
