The Freebie

Showing at Sundance: The Freebie, written and directed by Katie Aselton

For some reason I thought I hated this Dax Shepard person, but I think I was just confusing him with Dane Cook.

Synopsis from the Sundance website:

Darren and Annie have an enviable relationship built on love, trust, and communication. After seven years of marriage, they wouldn’t change their relationship one bit. They still enjoy each other’s company and laugh at each other’s jokes, but, unfortunately, they can’t remember the last time they had sex. When a dinner party conversation leads to an honest discussion about the state of their love life, and a bikini photo shoot leads to crossword puzzles instead of sex, they begin to flirt with a way to spice things up. The deal: one night of no-strings-attached sex with a stranger for each of them. Can one night of freedom be just what they need?

With a keen eye and fresh take, Katie Aselton’s directorial debut shines. The Freebie is an insightful, humorous look at love, sustaining relationships, and the awkwardness of monogamy when the haze of lust has faded.

Nothing on YouTube yet, but if you click the Sundance link above, it'll take you to a trailer.
