The directors of acclaimed romance/horror/sci-fi hybrid Spring are back with another disorienting tale of the unexpected. Years after fleeing the New Age cult in which they were raised, brothers Justin and Aaron (played by directors Benson and Moorhead) live a humble existence in the real world, struggling each day to make ends meet. When they receive a strange message from their former ‘family’, the siblings make the tough decision to return home and investigate. Aaron’s initial excitement is tempered by Justin’s reticence and soon the pair witness a series of inexplicable events that lead them to believe all is not as it seems. As with their previous work, Benson and Moorhead expertly fuse ambitious genre storytelling with intricate human insight, keeping the film emotionally grounded even as its increasingly twisted timeframes and tricksy narratives unfold. And boy, do they unfold. What does it all mean? You tell us. The possibilities are endless.
