A long, increasingly disoriented drive through a snow-covered landscape leads to a milestone in the relationship – the meeting with the parents – at the latest from writer / director Charlie Kaufman. For Jessie Buckley's unnamed girlfriend, Jake (Jesse Plemmons) holds out promise, even if the movie's serene title acts as a mantra-like internal dialogue. Jake's mother and father, played by Toni Collette and David Thewlis, wait in a house that doesn't seem to have been fixed by time. Kaufman told Entertainment Weekly, "The house represents the imaginary interaction between someone you bring home to your parents – that panic that is two-headed at this point. You worry about what they will think of your parents, and you always worry about what your parents will think of them. "
The film was adapted from Iain Reid's metaphysical horror novel by Kaufman and will premiere on Netflix on September 4th.
