One of the funniest and most enjoyable films that I saw at Sundance earlier this year was the sci-fi comedy Save Yourselves! It tells the story of a tech-savvy millennial couple who ditch their tech and head out in the middle of the wilderness and stay in a cabin. While they are there, the world is invaded by aliens, and the way the story plays out is delightfully hilarious!
Here is the synopsis for Save Yourselves:
Jack (John Reynolds) and Su (Sunita Mani) are a hip Brooklyn couple who, like many of their friends, find themselves dependent on technology and unable to put down their phones. Fearing their mindless scrolling may impact their connection with each other, they seize the chance to head to an isolated cabin in the woods, vowing to unplug from the outside world for a week. Sheltered from texts and push notifications, they are blissfully unaware that the planet is under attack. As strange events unfold, the couple must figure out a way back to civilization—or what’s left of it.
As I said in my review, “This is an extremely fun film that had audiences rolling with laughter and it’s a comedic movie that I think a lot of you will enjoy.” If you’re a fan of movies, this is one that you won’t want to miss!
Save Yourselves! arrives in theaters nationwide on October 2, 2020 and on digital October 6, 2020.
