A cohabiting twenty-something couple re-examine their relationship, with regards to marriage and kids, after babysitting their friends’ six-month-old baby boy, in Swanberg’s quietly powerful drama. Composed of long, static takes, in which its protagonists alternately go about and scrutinise their lives, this formally elegant (yet painfully authentic) work slowly takes a vice-like grip on its viewers’ guts.
