Movies are slowly cropping via streaming. One the new releases "The Rental" is the story of two couples who get a great rate for a beautiful house vacation home.
"Charlie" played by Dan Stevens and his business partner "Mina" played by Sheila Vand landed a big contract for their company and to celebrate they booked the home for the weekend. Joining him is Charlie's wife, "Michelle" played by Alison Brie and Mina's boyfriend, "Josh" played by Jeremy Allen White. He also happened to be Charlie's brother.
The weekend has some ups and downs and was bit strange. The couples had some interesting things going on. It was kind of boring.
The ending was OK but nothing incredible. I don't like movies with lots of loose ends but there you go. It just ended.
This was directed by David Franco. He is the younger brother of James Franco. This was his first feature as a director. He usually works as an actor and has starred in such movies as "Now You See Me" and "Warm Bodies". I think he should go back to acting.
