Victor and Miranda's failed marriage leads them to independently decide upon the same solution to reconcile their differences, once and for all. During their final dinner date, revenge is a dish best served cold.
Victor (Thomas Burks) and Miranda (Deirdre McCauley) separated for 10 years have a date night where they poison each other, something I suspected from the title. The rest of the film is a brief recap of their differences and some hallucinations showing their deepest fears, feelings, regrets etc. The film was far from horror or thriller. It was more art than entertaining. It was done well for what it was if creating something nerve racking is what you want to watch for 90 minutes.
The poisoning symptoms were unreasonable. Mushrooms make you sick and your stomach violently rejects them. It is hard to die from eating them, but they can make you real ill and sleepy. I didn't like either character and at 40 minutes I wished they would die or become zombies, making the film go in another direction.
Guide: F-word, sex talk, brief computer screen nudity.
Well acted, directed and presented. It's an incredibly artful and worthy movie presenting the total degeneration of two humans who once loved each other. Makes for an awkward date movie, but otherwise it is completely compelling.
