If it’s from Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation.) you can expect it to be a thought provoking mindbender and indeed, the first trailer for I’m Thinking of Ending Things is just that.
Despite second thoughts about their relationship, a young woman (Jessie Buckley) takes a road trip with her new boyfriend (Emmy nominee Jesse Plemons) to his family farm. Trapped at the farm during a snowstorm with Jake’s mother (Emmy and Academy Award nominee Toni Collette) and father (David Thewlis), the young woman begins to question the nature of everything she knew or understood about her boyfriend, herself, and the world.
