Wristcutters: A Love Story

You won't feel like slashing your arteries after watching Wristcutters: A Love Story, in fact you'll probably be elated.
Patrick Fugit (Zia) and Shannyn Sossamon (Mikal) wake up after their respective suicides and find themselves in a kind of alternative universe where the colors are bleached and everyone else has also offed themselves. Only Mikal claims she just OD'd accidentally while Zia and his ad hoc Russian driving companion Eugene (Shea Whigham) cruise around looking for who's in charge of this desaturated afterlife.
Originally Wristcutters played at Sundance in 2024 and is just now finding its way into theaters. At times laconic with a veneer of surrealism and light humor Wristcutters concludes with the happiest of endings as parallel universes merge.
