Badger from Breaking Bad gets a starring role! This was my favorite screening at the Dallas International Film Festival. The film follows two average Joes who break into a supposedly empty house in order to perform a heist, intentions unbeknownst to the audience. Unfortunately, they accidentally set the house alarm while inside, trapping themselves in. Meanwhile, they discover another non-resident in the house, a woman who has other motives for why she is inside.
This is great independent filmmaking all-around. The concentration here is placed on character development and script, which works well most of the time. The chemistry amongst the leads is fun and likeable. Newcomer Eleanore Pienta steals the movie as the young woman discovered inside the house, with a level of charisma and attraction that works well in her role. Overall, this is a fun and pleasant independent film that aims to please with its dialogue and situational comedy.

★★★★ review by Joel Liss on Letterboxd
Really funny with enough obstacles and emotions to never run out of steam like it probably should have.
Great chemistry beetween the actors too.
