Blue Jay

Synopsis: The two main characters, Jim and Amanda (Mark and Sarah) were high school sweethearts, but as time has passed they moved on with their lives and they have now become adults who have had their own different experiences along the way and now that they have reunited, we find they still have that chemistry between them. This was great casting, these two actors work really well together, normally I throw 9's and 10's all over the place These characters are so natural, so done with this earth in the sense that they live in our world, they are believable and now need an escape even if it is just for a single day. This movie focuses on just them, these two people for the entire film and I cannot thank Mark Duplass for this (he is the screenwriter) because I have not seen a film where the two main characters are the only characters, I didn't get sick of them, I did not find them boring, ever, they were very fleshed out and they felt like genuine, real people who were put in this situation and n
