Movie Review: 'Safety Not Guaranteed'

By Amanda Green, Natalie Gontcharova for YourTango

In new flick Safety Not Guaranteed, time travel ends up acting as a metaphor for love.

In Safety Not Guaranteed, two interns at Seattle Magazine, Darius (Aubrey Plaza) and Arnau (Karan Soni), accompany their boss Jeff (Jake Johnson) on assignment to find a mysterious would-be time traveler in rural Washington state. The traveler, a small-town guy named Kenneth (Mark Duplass) has posted a classified ad looking for an able time-traveling partner who will have to bring his or her own weapons. Safety, as you can imagine, is not guaranteed, according to the ad. The guy also claims he's successfully time-traveled once before. Everyone wonders just how crazy Kenneth is, and they're mostly in it for the story. The recently-graduated Darius, however, seems to crave adventure more than anything. She offers to win Kenneth over and report the scoop back to Jeff.
