(2017) (Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Sci-Fi: An alcoholic woman discovers that her behavior in America is somehow fueling the actions of a towering monster in Seoul, South Korea.
- Gloria (ANNE HATHAWAY) was previously a writer for an online publication but she hasn't worked in over a year, the likely result of her drinking problems that have pushed her live-in boyfriend, Tim (DAN STEVENS), to the point that he's now kicked her out of his New York apartment. With nowhere else to go, she returns to her childhood hometown and takes up residence in her parents' empty house. It's not long after that when she runs into her former elementary school classmate, Oscar (JASON SUDEIKIS), who runs a local bar and ends up giving her a job there as a waitress. The two become drinking buddies, joined by Oscar's friends Garth (TIM BLAKE NELSON) and Joel (AUSTIN STOWELL).
During that, however, strange things start happening half-way around the world in Seoul, South Korea where a towering monster has begun materializing out of nowhere and damaging parts of the city and injuring residents before disappearing. As shocking as that is, Gloria is more disturbed by the fact that it appears this monster has the exact same mannerisms as her, all of which leads to her discovering that her behavior in a local park at a specific time of day is actually the cause of the monster's appearance and destructive behavior. While trying to wrap her head around that, she must also contend with her new friends' reaction to that, as well as Tim seemingly wanting to get back together with her.
