Safety Not Guaranteed
Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass
Sometimes an up-and-coming actress deserves our attention regardless of the flick in question—and that’s the case with Parks and Recreation’s Plaza, who combines winsome looks with an endearingly wiseass attitude. Here, she plays a bored Seattle cub journalist who volunteers to follow a presumed crackpot (Duplass) who has taken out a classified ad announcing a timetravel mission. The two strike up a surprising chemistry, and what’s up with the sweating feds on their trail? Is the crackpot actually onto something?
