Corporate jobs are a chore. However, when your slogging is reimbursed with a management-sponsored vacation, there’s no holding back from having some fun, right? Spin Me Round, directed by Jeff Baena and centered around Amber (Alison Brie) is exactly that. Baena takes the promising expectation of geeking out at a dreamy work trip and turns the ‘vacation gone wrong’ to extremely odd extremes.
Premiered at the 2022, SXSW Film Festival, the film also stars Alessandro Nivola, Aubrey Plaza, Molly Shannon, Lil Rel Howery, Fred Armisen & Tricia Helfer among a host of other indie comedy circuit geniuses.
Opening up as a generic rom-com, Spin Me Round does stand by its title and completely turns around into a mysterious mix of weird crime drama with horror inclinations. Alison Brie doesn’t just stars but also co-wrote the film and produced it. In what is her dream run with director Baena, the actor-director duo is now up with their fourth collaboration; last seen in Netflix’s Horse Girl (2020).
Produced by the Duplass Brothers Production, the North American rights for the movies are with IFC Films and AMC+.
