HAPPILY
2021, Saban Films, 96 min, USA, Dir: BenDavid Grabinski

Tom (Joel McHale) and Janet (Kerry Bishé) have been happily married for 14 years. In fact, “happily” is a severe understatement. Their honeymoon phase never ended. But a visit from a mysterious stranger (Stephen Root) thrusts them into an existential crisis that leads to a dead body, a lot of questions and a very tense couples’ trip with a group of friends who may not actually be friends at all. Are Tom and Janet the victims of an elaborate prank? Or was the mysterious stranger even human to begin with? HAPPILY is a darkly comedic thriller with a stellar ensemble cast and a dozen twists and turns - an adult romantic comedy in the spirit of The Twilight Zone.
