A young couple looking for the perfect home find themselves trapped in a mysterious labyrinth-like neighborhood of identical houses.
I have watched this movie once. This was on .
I wanted to like this Twight Zone-esque movie, but it really struggles with a basic concept stretched a little too thin. Lured and abandoned in an inescapable endless suburban housing estate, a young couple must accept their fate and raise a baby they are mysteriously given.
Jesse Eisenberg is good as a man slowly losing his sanity and working himself to death with a thankless job. But it is Imogen Poots who shines, giving a nuanced performance struggling to accept her fate, maintain her relationship and raise a child. There are obvious parallels towards sleep-deprived parents but handled it in a more extreme way.
The kid is extremely creepy, especially the toddler tantrums and the parroting mocking mimicking using a strange projected voice. The set design adds to the eerie factor and the final ten minutes reveal the circular nature of the world. But it is a real slog for too much of the movie to recommend it.
