Description

A surprising intrusion shocks Brooklyn hipsters vacationing at an isolated cabin in the woods in this breezy comedy about “getting away from it all.” Jack (John Reynolds) and Su (Sunita Mani) are a devoted couple, but inept when it comes to “adulting,” so survival is not a given when they come face to face with a potentially world-destroying force. Reynolds and Mani are delightful as a loving pair blundering their way through the apocalypse in an amiable farce buoyed by their hilarious performances, original storytelling, and amusing, low-tech effects.

Save Yourselves! knowingly digs deep into [a] long-time couple’s obvious ennui… and pulls out a winking contemporary comedy with a generous dash of cutesy sci-fi weirdness.” –Kate Erbland, IndieWire
