"You and I were happier than any two people ever could have been."

If your birthday is in June, you’re a Gemini. As a special treat for our Gemini listeners we are talking about twins this month. Ansel Elgort plays both John and Jonathan in this under the radar film from first time director Bill Oliver.

Steve was excited about this one when it was his trailer pick last October. JJ is always up for a character driven film, especially one with an open ending. From comparisons to Black Mirror to creative ways to disorient the audience while keeping them engaged, Steve and JJ try to determine if this is really a sci-fi film. Along the way they try to answer many questions, starting with “why does a film with a cast of familiar faces go straight to digital release?”
