Critics reviews

For reasons that neither seem able to fully articulate, they wake up the next morning hungover and embarrassed, but determined to make good on their agreement. The sequence in which this news is broken to Ben’s wife Anna (Alycia Delmore) is squirm-inducingly funny, but the film swiftly and deftly moves into more emotional territory, as the couple are forced to question the extent to which their relationship is founded on deception and concealment.
