Flooded with new meaning, the film navigates rocky territory, from the dangers of globetrotting naïveté to the pressures of modern masculinity. At heart, though, this is a story about tests of character—those little trials, sprung on us at random, that reveal who we really are. For Nica and Alex, the moment of truth is a burden. Ignorance never seemed so blissful.
