Today is the last day of the 2012 Sydney Film Festival, and the trailer of the day is for the Closing Night Film, Safety Not Guaranteed.
About the film: "WANTED: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You'll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before." This unusual classified ad inspires three cynical Seattle magazine employees to look for the story behind it. They set out for the scenic seaside community of Ocean View and embark on a comical adventure. Darius (Aubrey Plaza, of hit television comedy Parks and Recreation) is a disillusioned college graduate who interns at the magazine. She's joined by a fellow intern, the very serious Arnau (Karan Soni), and their boozy boss, Jeff (Jake Johnson), and the three go about some clumsy investigative journalism. Jeff is apparently only interested in the story so he can hook up with an old flame who lives in Ocean View, so Darius and Arnau are left largely to their own devices. They find an eccentric named Kenneth (Mark Duplass, mumblecore pioneer and co-director of SFF film Jeff, Who Lives at Home), a supermarket clerk who believes he's solved the riddle of time travel and intends to depart again soon.
Embedded below is the trailer.
