Flavorwire’s Guide to Movies You Need to Stream This Week

Safety Not Guaranteed

Yes, it’s been on this roundup before — but there’s a new Aubrey Plaza movie (the sexy comedy The To Do List) out on Friday, and your film editor will never miss an opportunity to again insist that you spend 86 minutes in the company of this sweet, funny, and slyly serious-minded comedy about time travel. Correction: it’s about the idea of time travel — what you would do if it were really possible, and if you would trust someone who says that it is. Plaza is perfection in the leading role, indie filmmaker/actor Mark Duplass beautifully captures a very specific kind of paranoid jean-jacket dude, and New Girl’s Jake Johnson masterfully digs out the longing heart under his character’s sheen of smarm.
